Finished these just a few hours ago. I had two little nieces born this year so I made them each a box with their first initial to put their hair bows in. The third box is for a friend of mine. No originality in the box design, I followed Woodsmith vol. 33/No 194.
However, I did have some fun with the veneers and marquetry. It had been a long time since I made anything but longboards. It felt good to build a box again.
“M” box – Walnut with Satinwood veneer
“R” box – Indonesian Rosewood, Bloodwood, and Zebra wood
4-Way box – Cherry, Bloodwood, and wanlut burl.
