This is my first attempt at building a nice box. I made lots of mistakes, hopefully the next one will be better.

Looks great to me. Really like the contrasting wood finger joints.

The only difference between us and pros, they can fix or cover up the mistakes.
Turned out beautiful to me, great job.

Max,I sure don’t see any mistakes. That is one beautiful box. I really like the contrasting woods and the band of what I assume is purple heart between the lid and body of the box. Well done.

I really like it and you must have hidden your mistakes well as I don’t see em! Love the contrasting woods. This really showcases your box joints.

Alright > thxs for posting a follow-up to showing your front pull jig design. Great project > 1 observation IMHO – the pull you designed and made looks a bit small in proportion – but may be the camera angles. However > I wish my 1st box looked this good

I think it’s great, I still haven’t had the nerve to try lap joints.

Max,Looks to me you have “set the Bar” quite high with your first box.I am most impressed with just about every aspect of your work, the lid no doubt would have to be the most impressive lid I have seen to date.I would be interested in seeing a tool and materials list.
I can spot walnut and purple heart and what looks to be be something similar to poplar.

Very nice looking jewelry box. The contrasting woods, finger joints, and the raised panel detail on the lid all look great !!

I keep seeing boxes posted where people say it’s their first real attempt at a box, and I’m thinking I must be some kind of 10-thumbed oaf. My early boxes looked nothing like this beauty!
