    For my ladies

    I made these three boxes for my Mum, Wife and Daughter.
    The boxes are made of mahogany.
    For the finishing, I followed an article about finishing mahogany.

    Very nicely done! Certain to become an heirloom.

    Very nice, Alfredo. You did an excellent job.

    I'm sure they'll treasure the gift and think of you each time they use it.

    Hi Alfredo ,
    Very lovely boxes. They would be prized by anyone who recieved them, but your recipients are the most valuable ladies in the world!

    Now, about the secrets! How did you do your legs and how did you attach them?
    Also, your red inserts (the dividers) are very professional. Tell us about them. You have secrets you must share. Thanks for the pictures!

    Beautiful work, Alfredo. Very well done. As Shaz said, you should tell us more about how you made them.

    Thank you for your kind coments.

    For making these boxes, I followed this article

    I am curious about how you did the lining inside the compartments? I noticed around the outside of the box it looks to be a 3/8" of something wrapped in velvet. Do you use a flocker or the self adhesive velvet.

    I have been using the self adhesive velvet from Rockler and am thinking of switching to the flocker. I am worried about the flocker material coming off over the years.

    Anyone used the flocker on a project? How is it holding up?
