Well, those of you who have followed my past projects will probably remember I’ve made a couple similarly-purposed boxes in the past. This one was made for a friend who frequently comments on how much he likes one of the other ones.

The woods are walnut and maple (with a bit of oak and pine used in the divider system). Finish is natural Danish oil, followed by several coats of wipe-on satin poly. Overall dimensions are 14” x 9” x 6”.

I usually complain about the outcome of my projects, but I have to admit to being pleased with the way this one came out. Thanks for looking.

It would be difficult to not be pleased with how this turned out. A most attractive box, Mr. Charlie. But then, I like your other boxes as well. You do good work.

Excellent, Charlie! You’ve given me some ideas of one I could make for my home group.

Also, you know I was just joking about the ‘pigeon inlay’. That was also a nice project.

Have a biegnet for me !!

I can’t begin to express how much I like this box. Your pattern is perfectly centered and your joints appear to be spot on. I love the finish Wonderful.

Fine birthday box, Charlie. That parquetry lid is…festive! You may end up bringing people into the fold whether they are a friend of Bill’s or not – just to get to the chip ceremony.
