These nine “trinket boxes” were made using the plans taken from the Incra “Projects & Techniques” book by Perry McDaniel. The finishing method was taken from LJ “Kelby” in his post (#7) in the thread titled “What is danish oil?”. These pictures do no justice to the look and feel of his method. Thanks a bunch, Kelby, for your input. I will be using this finish on many other projects. The boxes are 6” X 9” X 3 1/4”. I used an door panel type router bit for the lids and added a chain to hold the lid when opened and 3/8” felt circles recessed in the side bottoms. The walnut hinges were made using Incra’s method. I was able to sequence 3 corners on most of the boxes and used one full piece when laminating the lid. Curley maple and walnut were used to construct the boxes.
Thank you for viewing this project.

I like the look of these boxes… saved for future reference. The half-blind double dovetails look fantastic.

Very nice boxes and a lot of work with the nice wooden hinges and other details.
That INCRA jig sure opens up a lot of possibilities .

Very nice! I love the look of the double dove tail. I have done a few so I can relate to what goes into making the joint. I have not tried the hinges yet.

Nice clean lines! I’ve seen several boxes that were built with Incra jigs and methodologies, and I’m always amazed by the tight tolerances.
