Showcase cover image for Dovetailed Box with Veener & Inlaid Lid

Project Information

I made this box as part of a class at Connecticut Valley School of Woodworking. I certainly could have made the box on my own, but I needed some woodworking motivation. Since the class began in Oct I've spent countless hours in the shop and posted several projects. The box is made of walnut with madrone burl veneered top and inlay framing the veneer. The dovetails were made using a tablesaw to cut the pins. The box is 13.5" x 8.25" x 4". I used Brusso box hinges that open to 95 degrees. Critiques welcome.

Glad to see that youve rekindled the passion Glen. The box is very easy on the eyes.

The box looks great, the inlay just brings the box to the next level. Great job.

Nice.

Now I need to rethink a box design I'm working on in my head. I like how the box and lid are cut apart at the dovetail. Interesting approach.

Nice work. Well done. The dovetails are an attractive accent and fit nicely with the lid and banding.

That box really is an eye catcher. Great blend of woods.
You just don't see allot of people using madrone burls. When I was a kid growing up in the Pacific North West we had Madrona trees, I wonder if they are cousins??

Truly a fine box, fine with the contrast in the woods.
I would love if we had some woodworking classes here in Denmark, but it seems there are no interest.
So I just have to find my way.
Best thoughts,
Mads
