I was commissioned to build this custom valet box for a customer, she specified it was for her 9 year old nephew’s first Holy Communion and wanted his initials and a cross so I came up with what you see here, the box is a two part box, the bottom part where the drawer is was done on the bandsaw thus the bandsaw box part, the rest of the box is joined together wrapped around the bandsaw box with miter joints and splines with an added hinged lid, the wood used in this project was Alder for the inner core, walnut for the body and Maple for the splines, cross and drawer pull.
I’ve not yet ventured into inlays as I would have liked the cross inlaid so was hoping that anyone of LJS veterans box makers could enlighten me on how I could have or how it’s done, tools, method etc… inlaying the cross on the lid, would be greatly appreciated.
Measurements for this box are 6 1/2 “ high x 6 1/2” deep x 11” long
Thanks for looking and comments are always welcomed.
