This is a box for my grandson, or rather for his mother to collect keepsakes in.
All cherry, at least I think so. :)

I routed out the inlays, but this time filled them with coloured wood filler and sanded flush. I applied some shellac before the filler, so it would not get into the grain around the routed out parts. It turned out OK I think.

Nice job Duncan. Your Grandson should be proud when he gets old enough to understand it was made by Grandpa with love.

Great job on the box Duncan!!! Handcut joinery puts it in another league altogether!

Well done indeed!

Good work Duncan! It will stay in the family forever....Under the heading of "Me Learning" the last pic shows an added lip on the inside upper part of the bottom half of the box? Yes? and its purpose?

Answers to a couple of questions raised:

The Korean character was provided by his mom, I think it means wisdom.

I added the lip, to both guide the lid in the correct position when it closes, and also you can't see inside when it is closed.
