Box number two. This one from padauk and maple. A lot was learned on box 1 so some differences but not a lot. Slight bevel for hinge clearance in the back and just a bit smaller in size. Both labors of love for the loves of my life. This took a lot of time and energy with all the sanding. Between shoulder surgery and summer heat, both got shelved for a time but finally put the finishing touches on them for birthday presents.

-- Just another day in paradise.

Evidently looking at them out of order, but it’s quite the box. The outside look goes without saying it’s something. What I liked the most though was the interior. I love a finished box, and this looks quite well appointed.

Nice job, thanks for sharing.

I like what you did with the softness of the contours.
