This is a little ring box I made from a chunk of mahogany that I reclaimed from the scrap bin at Ye Olde Day Job. It’s actually one of several that I’ve made over the years from a variety of woods that flow through my workshop. I’m always amazed, though, at the complex character of mahogany’s grain once it takes on a finish (in this case, an oil and wax mixture, followed by several applications of shellac). I hope I wouldn’t be out of line in mentioning that I sell boxes like this and a variety of other woodcraft at my online shop (smilemoon.etsy.com).

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!

I made this from a nice looking scrap of mahogany I had on hand. The lid slides on dovetail ways to reveal an oval-shaped pocket to store an engagement ring, or a weekend hike’s worth of pain killers, or even a short stack of dollar coins. I worked in a mixture of oil & wax, then finished it off with a few layers of shellac.
I made several of these and have some listed in my online shop (SmileMoon.etsy.com).

It’s been a while since I played with mitered boxes, and I had never made one with splined miters before, so I thought a small one made from a chunk of walnut would be an appropriate project to practice on.
The sides and bottom were cut from a single piece of reclaimed black walnut. I arranged the sides so the wood grain would look continuous all the way around. The small spline details were cut from poplar for contrast.
I poked around the dark recesses of my workshop for a long while before stumbling across this piece of smoky looking walnut I used for the removable lid. The edges and corners were rounded over extensively to soften its appearance, for a pillow-like effect.
Once complete, the box was sealed with a clear epoxy finish. It’ll hold about 30 bags of tea, or whatever you think it ought to hold.
