This is a keepsake box that I recently made as a high school graduation present for my niece. The box is made from ambrosia maple with walnut accents. The finish was simple wipe-on natural Danish oil that I buffed out just bring out the beauty of the wood and give it a warm glow. This box included many firsts for me, including producing really tight miters, adding decorative splines to the miters, the scrolling on the front/back, and mortising for a continuous hinge. I hadn’t been in the workshop for about 6 months before jumping into this project, so I’m very pleased with how the project turned out.
