    Keepsake Box in Maple & Padauk

    Here's a long overdue report on a project in progress: a loose lid keepsake box. I've had the box done for a while and I've been working on the lid. I took the last shaving from it on Saturday:





    The first photo doesn't show off the curly maple very well but you can see a bit of it in the second. Finishing is underway.

    Hey, Brett,

    I really like the contrast between the two species you selected, as well as the great grain pattern of the curly maple. It should really pop with the finish.

    Congrats.

    Forgot to mention...first miter splines. First real box, in fact.
