Logan’s Box

By Jim

Here’s a box I made for my Godson Logan. I don’t know what a little boy will keep in a box like this – frogs? worms? But, I hope he thinks whatever is in there is special.

It’s made of shedua with zebrawood on the sides joined with through dovetails, and a solid zebrawood top with three bloodwood plugs. On the days I his Godfather, the three plugs represent the Holy Trinity. On the days that I his cool Uncle Jim, they represent Wolverine’s (a.k.a. Logan) three claws.

Walnut and Bloodwood Box

By Jim

The sides of this box are made from two pieces of walnut.  You can see from the detail picture how the grain is continuous around the mitered corner.

Turned & Carved Box from India

By Jim

Again, I wish I made it, but I didn’t.  This turned and carved box features a threaded lid and intricate carving detail.  I’m not sure what kind of wood this is either.
