This project was made for my fiance as a birthday present. I haven’t been able to put as much time into this hobby of mine as I would have liked to since starting woodworking two years ago or so. But this box was constructed with techniques I hadn’t previously tried.
First I resawed and milled a 4/4 walnut board as to be able to produce a continuous matched grain pattern around the box. I picked up some beautifully figured maple boards a while back on eBay and have been hoarding them for some time now. I couldn’t think of a better use than for my future bride. The splines and lid tab are of maple as well.
This will be my first post on this site and am very excited to share some of my projects with this community. This box turned out pretty well I think. The pictures shown are halfway through the finishing stage. A few more coats of tung oil and it’ll be ready to go!
