I wanted to try out my new Akeda jig. I love this thing. This is right out of the box…er package.

This is a gorgeous box. What type of woods and finish did you use here. And don’t be shy about showcasing your work. You have three slots that you can use. Shoot pictures from different angles and certainly a picture of the inside is in order as well. Filling up the slots helps control the symptoms of our wood addiction. :)
Thanks for the post.

I don’t think you really like that jig. You better make some more boxes to prove it. Nice work.

Very nice. Haven’t seen that jig in use, but it looks like you managed to get it to work. I like the BE Maple versus the Walnut. Like teenage just said, I also am a big fan of walnut. It seems to compliment most species. Not as expensive as some of the exotics as well. Was the finish only Poly? The Walnut looks very vivid. I would’ve guessed there was an oil under the poly or something. Well done. Welcome to Lumberjocks.

Great combination of woods, walnut and maple go very well together. I really like the dove tailed corners. How do you like your jig?

Very nice box. I like the way the contrasting woods compliment each other.

Thanks for the reply about the wood types. I would have guessed the walnut but I wasn’t sure about the maple. These two woods make a nice combination. I can see that I need to start putting more effort into finding a spalted maple source. It adds a nice look to the piece.
