These are from a commission to make 10 small boxes as Christmas presents for a single extended family. Let’s hope they go down well.

I think you’re safe with the gifts. I like ‘em.

looking good
all very nice

the only thing i would maybe ask about
is having some engraving done on brass plates
(like at a jewelry store)
with the recipients name
or the family motto on them

might run that by the client
they could be screwed on anywhere on the box
to give them all a connected feeling to each other

Robert;

The boxes are the band saw type with the cut faces planed up, glued and clamped. I had my doubts when i read about this technique, but there always seems to be just enough long grain to make it work. These may be crude, but they’re fast and people seem to love them. The dovetail is my favoured joint; I might even get them right at some point.

All the best.
