This project was a lot of fun and I learned a lot along the way. Its a small keepsake box for my SO. Normally I don’t think people would use 3/4 inch stock for a box this size but its all i had on hand and I still didn’t have a planer at the time. To give the illusion of a thinner walled box i routed out depressions on the sides and used a 22.5 degree chamfer on the inside. I didn’t line the joints up with the wood separations but i can live with that. Making the lid fit was a challenge and I truly appreciate a good set of chisels, or at least a sharp set now. The wood is walnut and maple finished with 7 coats of tung oil.
