This is an example of the boxes I make. This one in quilted maple with an angular walnut pull. The grain is incredible in this wood and refracts the light in such a way that it appears to shimmer as you walk past. Building them gives me a chance to practice my patience, concentration and focus. Once the dovetails are cut three grooves are carefully cut on the inside of the parts. The box is glued shut completely assembled with no way in and you use a handsaw to part the lid from the bottom and open it up like a boiled egg.
