I am turning over a new leaf in my boxes. I thought I would share the progress. This is not completed yet as I am going to be adding some additional inlays in this inlaid lid.
Black Walnut and Birdseye Maple
I am really digging the sharp corners. What has me going down this path is my box of cut offs is overwhelmed and bulging. A perfect excuse to experiment.
All miters are completely CNC machined and well as the inlay itself.
This box dimensionally is within .003 of an inch from side to side. That is the advantage to the CNC miters. These last few boxes have changed my game on boxes and you will be seeing more and more of these.
This is the other side. I haven't decided what side I prefer to be the outside of the box.
These do take longer than normal as there are many set ups, re-machines etc. but the end results I believe are much better.
Crisp, sharp, naturally beautiful.
keep looking back to see some new corner miter lock designs coming soon.
This is a project I was helping someone get finished. I designed if from a rough sketch and it holds 15 standard Penzey's bottles. I like it and think I will be making a few of them. This one is from aromatic cedar, but I would make it from anything you like.
This bad boy smells so nice I don't think I will seal it.
Still needs sanding and gluing and is just rough fit now.
This fits in a 12x12x12 inch foot print.
Every panel is CNC machined
I could also design one for you based on your guidelines
More bottles, less bottles, bigger bottles,
If something like this interests you drop me a note and I will get one together for you.
This is me taken from probably about 4 years ago. My boss purchased a dream car drive for her husband, and he couldn't do it because of work commitments. She asked me if I wanted to do it and I was like YA!

It was a cool ride. Just happened across this picture tonight. Brought back a smile to my face.
I came home fully planning on getting this lid together and cut for the new threaded desk valet. Weeeellllll lets just say it didn't happen.
I did manage to lay up the lid parts the walnut and oak, not the inlay yet as I haven't decided on color.
Its still not sanded but the threads did turn out really nice.
Gives you perspective on size.
8-1/4 inch square blocks.
Black walnut will make up the bottom of the lid for contrast with the oak at the top. The inlay will be a redder color with radiused top. The glue took forever to dry tonight for some reason. Oh well tomorrow I will get the lid cut inside and out, threaded and inlay installed.
