A Valentines Box
Rosewood with Cherry inlay
For this box I chose
Rosewood because of it's smoothness and depth of color;
I wanted to make a constructed more professional
looking box this time.
The box was constructed with mitre joints on all the corners,
except for the drawer front which was left as a cutout.
After the top, bottom, and sides were glued, clamped,
and dried, I cut the top off about 1" down.
This was the first box I made where the top was not
just a flat piece of wood!
The inlays were, once again, routed out with the dremel
tool and the pieces of 1/8" Cherry were individually cut
and sanded to fit. The handle is solid, and the tray and
drawer dividers are 1/8" Maple.
I was very pleased with the way this box came out.
