Keepsake box and oak heartbox woodworking projects

1 Comment

Here are pictures of our two newest woodworking projects.    I made 9 oak and mahogany heart boxes.   Here is the oak one.   It is about 4″ across.oak_heart

This box below has several nice features.   The top has a beautiful piece of veneer, Bob’s first attempt on his own.  The white inserts at the corners are called splines.  The outside of the box are angled which give a special look to the box.   You can’t really see the angle in this photo. The wood is from Africa and called sapele.  The box is 7″ by 10″ and we call it a keepsake box.   It is also the wood that Cadillac uses inside their cars.   It has beautiful grain.
