These are repeat cuts of the first tooth and first hair cut boxes. They seem to be quite popular. I was asked to make 2, but the material would allow me to make 4 so waste not! I will have two for the next show.
Black Walnut and Bubinga, and Cherry and Paduak.
Start of the pocketing
3D milling the inside lips
Walnut set ready for sanding. note the magnet pockets for closure.
Now the start of the cherry

Lids test fitting
tops of the inside lids not cut yet

Still have to finish sand and stain, mount the magnets and hinges, but they are basically there.
Do you need a unique gift for someone special for Christmas? We still have time but got to get going on it now.
