Showcase cover image for A Smile Box

Project Information

My Sister who lives 1500 miles away from me, makes me "Smile Boxes" of her Gran Kids & e-mails them to me, I don't know how to do those kind of smile boxes so thought i would make her a smile box of my version. I am sure she will like it, although it may be a crying box when she first gets it. The box is made from the most beautiful piece of Cherry I have ever seen (bought out of the scrap bin) with a touch of sapwood on the edges which I really like. the lid is Walnut with a Paduk medallion insert. The inside divider is Cherry, & the splines are Paduk & Walnut to match the lid. The box is 12 X 7 by 3 3/4 deep. The finish is Deft spray can Lacquer. I think this is one of the best looking boxes I have made….................................Jack
