Gift Box

This is a Steve Good Pattern (
This is the second time I’ve used this pattern. It is tricky to put together but very versatile. I made it from different Maples. Another Christmas gift off my list!


Great looking box Love the scroll saw top and joinery.

Thanks Jim. To be honest I had a bit of filling to do on those joints – they weren’t fitting tightly enough!


Beautiful! Thanks for reminding me that I better get on my Christmas projects!

Hello, Anna. I have been … away… for a while. You seem to have gotten even MORE talented during my absence. Your skills are scary good. I am humbled in the presence of such talent. Now if I could only get on that Christmas list… — Bill

Hi Bill, I’m so sorry you got the virus. Yes the isolation and the quarantine would be very challenging. I wish you a speedy recovery with hopefully no long term side effects. Stay safe!
