Here are a few boxes i made this summer. I made 3 jewelry boxes with sliding trays. Picture #3 shows the inside of the box in picture #4. – The fourth picture is Mahogany with Maple splines and inlays. – The fifth picture is Aspen with Canary Wood inset in the lid and Mahogany splines. – Picture 6 is Cherry with Canary Wood inset in the lid and Maple splines

I made 4 small. open boxes out of scraps created when I practiced cutting miters. After I cut the miters , I used the scraps to practice resawing on my band saw. I did not want to toss the scraps so I made some open boxes out of them.

Sweet Boxes!
I especially like your mahogany splined box with the inlays. Very cool set of boxes and a cool way to save the scraps!

Thanks Jon. To be truthful, the inlays were an attempt to clean up some hideous miter joints.

A great collection, you have good skills on dressing things up.

Fear not doing whatever you feel about repairs. I’ve added splines into box edges that had a gap and was pleased with the extra interest it adds.
The thin wall boxes make great catch alls for many things. Place one near your front door for keys, etc.

Have your say...
