03 How to Make a Keepsake box from Wenge and Birdseye Maple

Get plans for this project here:

I made this keepsake box for my oldest daughter for Christmas.

I bought the lumber from one of my local hardwood dealers, The Frank Paxton Lumber Company, and I bought the SOSS hidden hinges at Rockler.

I used Wenge (pronounced WHEN-ghay), and Birds-eye Maple for the project.

The box is created with through dovetail joinery. (I used a Porter Cable Dovetail Jig for this). And I think it is built strong enough to last more than a lifetime and become an heirloom woodworking piece.

I used my chop saw, jointer, planer, table saw, bandsaw, dovetail jig, and router table as the primary tools for this job.
