    A little box with inlaid dovetails

    I have been making this little box for a silent auction at a local church in which our daughter is a member. I have never entered anything in a silent auction; I still have to finish sanding, apply Waterlox original, hand-rubbed to a satin finish:

    Very nice looking box, well executed design. It should bring a lot of bids at the auction.

    That sure is nice Al, keep us updated on what it brings, I'm sure it will be a fair bit.

    LOVE them dovetails!

    You went all the way with that neat box. Hope it brings a hefty sum for the church. I like those inlaid dovetails. Very attractive. I understand boxes like that were called 'Bible boxes' even though they were not used to actually store bibles. Dunno why that name got attached.

    Thank-you, ALL, for the terrific comments!!!

    I will doing a photo tutorial in the next week or two, and will post it at my blog. A loooong time ago I asked right here if anyone was interested in this tutorial, and the answer was a resounding YES. Of course, other things kept me away from it, but now I must re-focus and get it done (THAT is the main reason for the blog...)

    Thanks for looking!

    I like the figure of the wood you chose to use! The inlaid dovetails make a really nice accent.
