    I built this trinket box for my Mum last Christmas.
    It’s based on a design by Doug Stow and I pretty much used his methods too. The lower are is divided into 6 equal compartments and there is a piston fit try that goes on top. It’s made out of White Ash except the handle on top which I made out of a branch of the Plum tree in our garden that had to be removed. I’m still pretty pleased with the way it turned out but the nice thing about Paul’s Masterclass for me is that I now feel I could build a much better one. Size-wise it’s about 10″x5″x5″

    Anyway, hope you enjoy it

    Looks very nice. Well done, Jon.

    It looks to me like an enhanced finger joint for the sides, is that correct? Are the separators dadoed or how did you fix them?

    Hi David, Yes the separators are they to add a bit od strength and also give a bit of visual interest. I cut the slots on a table saw using a jig I made and then planed the timber to a nice fit. Doug Stowe recommended thining the stock by hitting it with a hammer then when you glue it in, the part springs back to original size. but I just used my plane.
