Here are a few pics of my latest project. It is a keepsake box for my watches, etc. The timber is curly maple, black walnut and ebony. The front catch and hinges are made of ebony. There was a bunch of stuff I had never attempted before that I did on this project. Foremost is the wood hinges. They were tricky units to make (without any mistakes). I had to make about 5 sets to get two sets I was happy with. I used a combination inlay miter/finger joint on the box corners. This went fairly well but there were a couple that didn't close up 100%. The inlays were done on a finger joint jig on my TS. I think there are other preferred methods and maybe next time I will try them. I like the style of the combination miter/finger joint as it gives the appearance of an enclosed joint. The top is bookmatched walnut with some burl in it. And the front catch which maybe you can't see well has a roundover on the top and bottom with a curly maple pin which I turned. All in all I am fairly pleased with the results.
