My youngest son wanted a box to keep his coin collection in. This box is made from maple with cherry splines. Inside, there are three levels for storage. The middle level has a box that slides from one end to the other. The top level has a box that lifts out. This was my first attempt at mortising the lock and hinges into the sides.

Overall, I was pleased with the outcome. In hindsight, I wish I would have used a nicer wood for the top and maybe personalized it somehow (initials, name, etc).

I think its beautiful and your craftsmanship really shows in all the attention to detail. I not usually a fan of metal hardware but yours is so tastefully done that I really like it. Those hinges are very unobtrusive. You did a perfect job mortising those hinges and that lock.
