I'm making some jewelery boxes for my bosses wife & 2 daughters. Kinda kicking myself though - I decided to make it a bit of a challenge & use only traditional tools/techniques. It's taking a bit longer than expected. They might still smell a bit of finish, but I should be able to get them done just in the nick of time. I hope.

It came down right to the wire. I was installing hinges on the boxes on Christmas day & left an hour late. Because of the time restraint the joinery was a little sloppier than I liked, but they absolutely loved them just the same.
