This is one of two boxes I made for my daughters, my first project(s). They were made from curly maple with machine cut dovetails (Incra jig). I’ve learned so much since these were first constructed about a year ago. Now I would have spaced the dovetail further apart and made them smaller. The girls were thrilled though since they have a way to lock their possesions away from their brother. The brand on the inside of the top was from a former working branding iron my grandfather used in Oklahoma, back before statehood, when it was still “Indian Territory”.
I have accumulated several projects I’ve made over the last year that I will post one or two at a time for fairness to others.
