A commission for a friend and my first box with dovetails. Golden swirls of camphor laurel top of this delightful pencil box. Made from warm red jarrah with dovetail joints and lined with suede.

nice job- on a side note, what kind of camera do you use? it seems like a DSLR judging from the depth of field you get, and the quality is great, too.

I have a Sony A65 camera that takes cracking pictures. All of these were taken indoors in a fairly dim room without a flash.

Howard, nice job. Camphor Laurel is a beautiful wood. Continuous hinges are nice. Look here too. Keep boxing and keep posting.
