Continuing on in the “making gifts with computer-driven tools” series, next was a quick box for my mother’s birthday. I drew up a small CNCed jewelry box in Fusion 360.

I milled it out of 2 small pieces of Sapele. I deliberately left milling marks inside; in this case I liked the texture it gave to things. Also, I was rushing to make a shipping cutoff.


The box closes with magnets; they’re hot-glued into place.
