Round box with roses

Another box with roses

I decided to make a jewelry box as a present for my wife this holiday. I milled every part on my Shapeoko 2: A lid with roses, a ring for the sides and a bottom part. The result looks like this:

I reused the 3D roses from this box and from the cabinet door I made earlier. The box is made from pine and has a diameter of 150 millimeters.

As seen on the last photo I’ve milled the lid on both sides: the roses on the upper side and a groove on the underside that fits into the box when the lid is on:

Making a coin box

A friend of mine loves board games and has bought a set of coins to use in the games. However, he wanted a box to keep the coins at hand when playing, so we designed a box for that purpose.

I used the same kind of mahogany as we used for the Dominion turntable we made for his Dominion card game. After milling and a lot of sanding I gave it a clear coating to bring the wood to life.

Here’s the result:
