This new (for me) box design has been on my “to do” list for a very long time. It appeared in the May 2007 issue of WOOD. I finally got around to making four of these boxes after making the two jigs to facilitate doing the compound curves for the top.

The first on is Cherry and Walnut, second one is Cherry and Quilted Maple, third one is Walnut and Quilted Maple and the fourth one is Walnut and Zebrawood.

Gorgeous boxes. Well done. I think the walnut and maple is the most striking.

What are the dimensions? Do you have a picture of the interior?

Overwhelmingly great. Would you share your jig to make the lid curves?

Check the May 2007 issue of WOOD. The drawings and photos and descriptions of the jigs are there. Too difficult to try to describe here without drawings and photos. One jig is used with a 5” sanding disc on the drill press. Another is used with the bandsaw and oscillating spindle sander to do another part of the operation.
