Project Information

This small box is made from scrap pieces around the shop. Cherry box with mitered corners and red oak keys. Top and bottom panels are made from mdf veneered with lacewood. My first attempt at veneer, my second attempt with a hinged lid. The proportions are a tad "?" in that not much fits inside, but otherwise a good learning experience.

Nice job. Tight miters, everything seems to be nicely aligned….pretty good!

The only recommendation I would make is to either cut the miter keys on the router table or get a saw blade with a flat top grind to eliminate the ears in the bottoms of your key slots (I had the same issue)....Other than that, great job!

I like the box. If you don't mention any perceived "flaws", then none are seen. The character traits of your box make it unique. Keep on working on the wood.

Any blade suggestions?

I like this application for lacewood. It's kinda too bad, though, because in this case the dimensions are so small that this box can't really showcase the lacewood grain pattern. I suspect, though, that this is a function of the size of scrap available and not so much by choice. Nice job! I'll be waiting to see what is suggested about what blade to use.
