It’s about time I made some more of these. This is the first run of these little beauties since last fall. I made some improvements on the fit of the dovetail sliding lids. Also, I have gotten away from simply boring out the storage space with a large drill bit, and have moved toward routing out a graceful elliptical space using a template I developed specifically for these boxes. I’m also starting to go a little more free-form with the shape on some of the lids. The finish, as always, is a combination of bees wax, carnauba wax, and mineral oil, with a final lacquer seal. For this batch of boxes, I’m using mahogany, walnut, and figured walnut. Enjoy!
