It took me a while to unload the camera but here are a couple pictures of a gift box I made for my daughter and son in-law. The wood is spalted maple from the August wood run. I finished with BLO and then 4 coats of wipe on poly.

That is very nice!

Any hints on the construction?

Awesome figure in the wood, that looks great. The only way I could write someone's name in wood is if he or she were called "Oooo" (I'm not accurate, but the drill press is :))

So, do you make the box first, then do the scrolling? Or scrolling first, then make the box?

The construction is rather simple. The lid is a simple but effective lift off. The lid and box are each made from 2 pieces of wood. The wood came from a 8/4 soft maple board which I resawed a roughly 1/4 inch board off of.

For the box I cut the inside shape out first. The box is about 1.5 inches high. Then I glued on the piece for the bottom. After drying I cut the outside shape.

For the lid lip I also cut the inside of the lip shape out first. Then I cut a slightly oversized version of the top. After that I cut the names and design into the top. Finally glued up the 2 piece for the lid and cut the outside.

Except for the glue ups and finshing you could make one in less then 2 hours no problem.
