I made this box for my wife as she asked for a new recipe box. This was my first project made of black walnut and i loved working with it. This is my third project with hand cut dovetails and i can see improvements from the other 2 projects. I hope i can eventually master that technique as i love the look of dovetails on a project. I used my router to cut the A in the lid. As you can see in the third picture(the inside bottom of the box) it took 2 trying to get it right. Thanks for looking.

Great looking box with very attractive dovetails.

Great job! It came out great, like the gorgeous walnut and those hand cut dovetails are impressive.
