This may be my favorite of the pillow boxes. Bubinga body and lid with maple miter keys and oil-rubbed bronze lid handle. Maple tray and dividers with black velvet bottoms. At just under 8 inches square it kind of falls between a keepsake box and a jewelry box.

This one seems more art deco. I like it!

Oh, I like this one! It has a presence and is light on its feet. I, too enjoy making the convex sides on some of my boxes. I haven’t made one in a while, but I think I am inspired to do one again.

Artful design and craftsmanship, Steve O. Nice choice of of contrasting woods, and the lid handle emphasizes the focal point at the apex of your beveled lid, which then directs your eye downward to those classy miter keys. Thanks for posting this for the rest of us to enjoy.

Steve,
I like all three of your pillow boxes, so I’ll just add this one comment. I like the idea of following a theme muse to different ends, and you’ve certainly done it well here. Really nice feel to these three.

Love the shape on this box. Very graceful and smooth. I know how hard it can be to make all the curves look uniform and you nailed it. Great craftsmanship! Thanks for sharing!
