my First ( and only ) box made to dateHi all, As the title says, this is ( so far) the only box I have made. I actually made this a couple years ago. I hope that's ok for posting. I love making smaller projects, but my honey do list is mostly for larger projects ( book cases, bedroom furniture, things like that ) so I was thrilled when the Mrs. asked for a keepsake box. I looked at tons of pictures and kind of picked out the details I liked. The wood was black walnut, a couple of boards I picked up locally and for the top insert a cutoff of a piece of air dried black walnut I had bought years ago for another project. So, to the build. There are four main components, the lid, main body, feet and tray. The lid is mortise and floating tenon with a groove cut around and the insert floating.
The main body is mitered with square ” maple keys” for alignment and as a detail. Unlike most I do most of my miter work on the chop saw.

I finished the inside prier to assembly.
The feet ( bottom) are mitered together with hidden splines then routered to leave the ” feet” proud of the rest of the bottom.
The tray is maple and black walnut
The hinges were brusso. All told I loved making it and my wife was ecstatic. My only disappointment was the walnut board I picked up did not have the ” snap” of the air dried insert. I have since heard the colors of air dried walnut are much more vivid.
Thanks for looking
