Finished a cedar sewing box. It has dovetailed corners. I ripped the lid in half by hand to make the bookmatched effect. The handle was also steam bent.

Beautiful. Ripping the lid couldn’t have been easy.

Thanks for all the comments. @JuanGatico- Now it is western red cedar, although when it is cut it will put of a great scent in your shop.
