Just finished 10 walnut Christmas keepsake boxes and one mahogany (carved flower top) birthday keepsake box. All have handcut dovetail corners and are felt lined.

The flower topped box is made from Honduran mahogany cutoffs from my previous knee hole bureau. In fact all the boxes are made from left overs from other projects.
My carvings are all by hand via Mary May training. I will never own a CNC machine as my interest lies in period furniture reproduction and hand tool work.

Thanks for the reply...my hat is off to those of you with the motivation and skill to carry on with traditional methods.

Very nice work on all of them. I for one would appreciate some more pictures of some of them individually, if it’s not a lot of bother. I’m sure others would like to see more too.
