Keepsake boxes. Made for my girls based on the woodsmith design. It was fun to try out splined miters – had not done that before. Both boxes are made of maple one stained with Vermont maple and the other with red-mahogony and finished with poly.

I like that tapered sides design. I’m not usually a fan of stain but yours really worked well on that maple.

That is a great looking pair of boxes. I like the look you got with the stain. Also love the tapered and splined corners! Great execution!
