Here is a Christmas keepsake box I made based on the online workshop hosted by Rob Cosman. Turned out really well for my first “precision” project. I was able to make almost everything by hand mostly utilizing my shooting board and Wood River 5 1/2, however I did use my router to make the corner joints. I made a little jig to turn the dowel as well and was surprised at how smooth the finished dowel was. I didn’t even need to use sandpaper, just came straight off of the plane and sprayed with rattle can lacquer. Overall I’m very happy and hope the recipients will be too!

I just love boxes and this one is a beaut. Nice job on the hinge.

Thanks! I got to talk to him and actually gave him suggestions for setting up his dowel making jig. It was awesome!

Wow, I never saw Walnut that red. Must be the camera or lighting.

It was on my iPhone 5 so I’m sure it’s the lighting. It is a nice brown for lack of a better description.

I’m just finishing a Jatoba table for my MIL which I’ll post to show some Jatoba.
