Just finished a smallish box and some coasters for a wedding gift. The box I made with walnut, padauk and maple. Maple bottom panel is free floating in a dado. The coasters are the same material just out of some of the small strips I’ve been collecting. I do t expect the coasters to survive much abuse.

“L” is the first letter of their last name.

Built on the fly without plans. Spray on semi gloss poly for a finish. The box came out pretty decent (I’m getting better!). The one thing I would have done differ early is stop the dados at the bottom of the feet instead of running them all the way.
