  1. Unique Keepsake Box from a Beginner Lumberjock

    Hi everyone, I finally finished my girlfriend's Hope Chest that I have been working on for the last several weeks. I knew I wanted to make a keepsake box for her for her birthday, so while I was in 'woodworking mode' I decided to go ahead and make a keepsake box for her. I used the leftover...
  2. Keepsake box with unique "wood pattern"

    This keepsake box was a commisioned item that I thought turned out kind of neat. It is Ziricote with Curly Maple for the top, lift and keys. I really liked the "lightning bolt" spalting design that was in the middle. You can even still see the little worm hole ! Dimensions are: 9×4 x 3 and...
  3. Keepsake box

    Sides are maple, splines are walnut, lid is walnut/maple/cherry/padauk.
  4. Medium Boxes With Lift Lids

    Decided to build a couple of smaller boxes than I usually build. The darker box is smoked eucalyptus veneer with cedar lining on the inside, walnut trays and maple trim. The lighter box is also a veneer that I was unable to identify, also with cedar lining on the inside, walnut trays, african...
  5. Keepsake Urn

    This is a keepsake urn. A cousin of my co-worker, Lori, passed away and upon seeing her obvious pain, I volunteered to make an urn for the cremains. I dug out a special piece of figured Myrtlewood I had been saving and started working on a design. After doing research online, I found that the...
  6. Oak and Walnut Keepsake Box

    Oak and walnut box, hand cut dovetails in construction, with a walnut inlay.
  7. Inlaid Keepsake Box

    This is a keepsake box I made as a gift about a year ago. Made of all solid African mahogany, even the top and the bottom. The inlay is of canarywood and walnut. Splines are maple. I took the Woodwhisperer's design for the inlay. Used some nice Brusso hardware and a lock from Rockler, which...
  8. Urn Keepsake Box

    This was, without a doubt, my most difficult project. My Brother passed away unexpectedly last week, complications from the flu and and pneumonia. His Wife and kids asked if I would make a wood box to be used for the ashes, with room for keepsakes. They needed it in 1 week, but I said of course...
  9. Rose Vine Keepsake Box

    This was a project that was an experiment that sort of went wrong. I tried for the first time to take a scrolled inlay pattern, then fill it in with polymer clay and bake according to the instructions. At first I was very pleased with the results, then I looked closely. Yikes! The lid now has a...
  10. Lacewood and walnut large box

    This box has easily been two years in the making. Sorry for the poor quality image. the corners are mitered and splined with maple. Lacewood has been a nightmare but overall i am happy with it.
  11. Keepsake box, confirmation gift.

    I made this box for my sons confirmation gift. It's quarter-sawn makore, quarter-sawn sycamore and a little maple. Specifically the top underside is maple. I was afraid the sycamore wouldn't display the scripture. My wife and I chose the scripture because he's a young man and he's growing up...
  12. Spalted Pecan Keepsake Box

    This is a keepsake box made of spalted pecan with spalted maple splines. The walls on this box are right at 3/8" which really lends itself to the display quality of the box, from the top of the box disappears and the contents take center stage. The wood has enough character to take center stage...
  13. My One Year In Project.... Cornerstone

    Its crazy how time flies when your busy making sawdust and enjoying good friends here on Lumber Jocks. This project was officially completed last week, but I was so close to my one year…. Well, I had to save it for the occasion. We all have had those projects where we where are like "Humm It's...
  14. Another Keepsake Box

    Just as the subject states. Seems like there are quite a few on here made by the same plans. I have to agree with the others that have uploaded their work on this plan in saying that this was a really fun project. 90% of the time I spent on it really was just zeroing in the jig to make the...
  15. Showtime! Batch 'o Boxes

    Once again, some projects for the show this weekend. The previous versions of these have been good sellers. These are the same design as my previous boxes, only difference is I changed the finger joint shape a little (fully rounded all edges) and left out the tray. EDIT I forgot to add that I...

  17. Two Kids, Two Weddings, Two Keepsake Boxes

    Both of our kids got married this year (son in August, daughter in November) to wonderful spouses, and I (in consultation with my wife) built these keepsake boxes for them as wedding gifts. They're made of walnut and ambrosia maple, finished with boiled linseed oil and shellac. The hinges are...
  18. Keepsake Boxes

    Here are 2 Keepsake Boxes I made for my son and daughter. My son's was made from Curly Maple/Walnut, and my daughters was done with Curly maple/Purpleheart. The dovetails are handcut, and the hinge for the lid was done with a maple dowel in the side of the box that when into the side of the...

    My wife's birthday is coming up, and I wanted to make her something special. I had some purpleheart and maple scraps laying around and decided to make this simple keepsake box. Thanks for looking!
  20. Maple and Bubinga Keepsake box with Lock in Lid

    My "home shop" is one bay of my two car garage. I have recently reached that magical point where my tools allow for more than just upgrades to the house- and can now do actual woodworking projects! This is the first box I have done since high school (some dozen plus years ago.) It should not...
