Curley Maple and Mahoney were used for this Christmas gift.
It took most of the construction time building jigs for alignment and assembly.

Cool box Barksavage,
I like the square sided slides and the faceted legs. I also like the contrasting wood you’ve used.
What is very cool to me is the pic of all the jigs you built and used to make this box.
Great job.

sent you a pm

Very nice! I’m sure the recipient will be very pleased. I build several pagoda style jewelry boxes and the difficultie level is far greater than appears. Beautiful!

Thats really unique, I like how you’ve turned something usually purely functional (drawer slides) into a feature.

Can’t say I’ve seen drawer rails like that before. Is that something I have just missed, or do you have vivid dreams?

Nice job.
