Recently completed ash and mahogany keepsake box. The top is a significantly raised panel style top to give the box more interesting appearance from a distance. The particitions are made of maple and are cut to side but not glued into the box. The dovetails are hand cut and the box is finished with 5 thin coats of hand rubbed oil.

It’s a beautiful box! Has clean lines and great dovetails, like the top most. Truly a keeper!
