This is Dede’s box but it should be called the Murphy’s Box. I swear, everything that could possibly go wrong did. I ended up throwing away one of the pin boards due to horrible blow out and completely redoing it. After the box was done except for cutting the groove for the bottom, I cut the grooves on the outside of the tail boards. Amazingly enough the dovetails were so symmetrical and the same size that I was able to just reverse them and they fit! This box has better figure inside than out! The handle was shaped with rasps and knives and sandpaper and then just glued to the front of the lid. The finish is Witches Brew and wax and the bottom is dark purple crushed velvet.
Happy Birthday Dede!
