This is a christmas box I made for my mom. It was my second attempt at double dovetails. The fist time I tried building this box, the double dovetails were so bad that I decided to start over. They came out much better on this box than the first. My original idea was to make the simple ribbon box, but I wanted to add a something else to make it more special, and thats where the dovetails came in. The dimensions are 8” x 10” x 3 1/2” tall. This box is made of walnut, maple and zebrawood, one of my favourite combinations. The bottom of the box is cherry. When I asked my mom what she wanted for Christmas, she said a box. I told her I didn’t know how to build boxes and that I would make her a nice bowl, so she was very surprised when she unwrapped it!
Thanks for taking a look!
