Palm Boxes for Christmas.

Santa kicked the workshop into gear and knocked out a batch of Palm Boxes for small gifts when visiting this year. (30 something in all)
I did this last year and they went over well.
A friend of mine provided me with some exotic scrap pieces and I mixed and matched them up as best I could.
I think I counted about 12 different species of wood all together.
It was a lot of fun.
Thanks for looking and have a great day.

Very attractive pieces! I’m not entirely sure what a palm box is though. Something a female baker might use…in my house at Christmas, if the female baker were my mother, she’d keep a stun gun in there to keep me off the whiskey before dinner. Thanks for sharing!

Treasure boxes small enough to fit in the palm of one’s hand.
What would I put on one …?
I have a little bracelet from my youngest daughter’s birth with her name on it. I think I’d put that in one and give it to her. Two treasures, the box and the bracelet.

these are great! I love all the woods and the blue felt (?) inside…

One question—-how does the top hinge on? Could you add some picts of close up top/hinge? Is it just a small dowel in a hole?

Hi Matt,
The lid is hinged on with a 1/8 brass rod pinned in to each rear corner, to a depth of about 1”.
I put a small dab of CA glue on the end to hold it in.The essence of easy.

Great Work Eric!!
Seeing those pictures,
They’re going to have to change that classic,
“March of the Wooden Soldiers” to
“March of the Wooden Boxes”!!
Merry Christmas to You and Yours my Friend.
