I batched out eight of these stationary boxes for a Christmas order, which was a little daunting.
Made from maple and walnut.

Very attractive boxes.
The joints look flawless and the contrast between the walnut and maple is striking.
Great work.

VERY NICE. How did you make the tenons???

-- Joel, People ask what I make. I tell them I make sawdust, and now and then a nice box or frame,or clock, or lamp pops out.

Wow, that is impressive.
I just built 13 boxes for Christmas gifts so I understand daunting.
Mine were all just mitered / splined corners though so not really comparable to what you have accomplished.

Very nice. The tenons are a great touch.

Thank you for your kind comments.
stripit – I cut both the mortises and tenons with my Origin router.

Have your say...
