Here's a few more boxes that I've managed to knock out over the past few months..

The first is maple and walnut...a request from the LOML for one of her church ladies buddies...The lil music box is a simple 8 note that actually sounded pretty nice...Amazing Grace...finish is spray can lacquer...

the 2nd was for my son-in-laws mother...Just a good ole country gal, so I though she would like something along these lines... wood is spalted maple..inlay was purchased from Rockler...finish is spray can lacquer..

Third and perhaps one of the nicest boxes I've done was for my daughter...she hinted around for something a little 'classy'.. so I thought I'd give doing a little inlay work on my own a try. Nothing too terribly difficult and I think it turned out very well. Wood is quilted maple top, curly maply sides and solid ebony trim....Finish is spray can lacquer.

Got another 4 more in the works down in the shop and thats it for a while....finally broke down and took a commissioned project. A nice walnut/rosewood/maple sitdown chess table and board.....really looking forward to this one...

thanks for lookin'.

edited to add one more... box for my grandson...white oak/walnut/pinknot cherry top.....finish is rattle can poly.....This one really turned out nicely...the proud box joints took an otherwise rather plain box and added a nice dimension... All of the boxes with the exception of the church ladies box, have a flocked insides...glue was/is the same color as the flocking dust.. really made getting a nice finish on the inside possible...

Most excellent. My wife likes and collects boxes. She saw these, and like everyone else we both said wow. Hope to please here by doing something like this one day. I`m just
getting started though. Nice work.
