Default wooden boxes

I have been in the Man Cave making more sawdust and noise.

I have made a funeral urn for an infant's ashes. Made of birdseye maple.
Also made a basket for someone. Made it out of tiger maple and mahogany.
And made a gift box out of birdseye maple and walnut.

Finish: sand to 180 grit with regular sandpaper on orbital sander. Then sand with 180, 360 and 500 grit foam pad on random orbital sander.
Then applied several coats of Zar polyurethane mixed with mineral spirits - about 50/50 - applied with 1/4 sheet of the blue paper shop towels. After two coats I sand very lightly with 320 paper.

Points to Ponder...

LEARNING - the decision you make to know and
understand more about some thing.

TIME - the thing that gets in the way of learning.

Malcolm you always produce such beautiful boxes. What is your secret for producing such perfect corners? Do you use a miter trimmer?
