My daughter -in-law wanted a simple box to keep her stuff in. The exterior is walnut and the interior is cedar. The corners are box joints done on a table saw. The hardware is from Lee Valley.

Clean and simple lines, nice work on the trays, great figure on the wood!
Is the color differential on the top panels that pronounced, or is it just the lighting in the photo?

The top is, I think the term is “book matched”. It came out of the same block, just opposite sides of the re-saw. And the colour is a little different depending which way you look at it. What I couldn’t capture in the picture unfortunately is the smokey veil that seems to run through the whole grain. I’ve never seen it in any wood before. It just seems to float through the piece. By the way, this wood defied hand planing. I must have removed 1/8” with a scraper before I gave up and hit it with the power sander. However the results were worth it. It now has what my brother calls my “Fondle Me Finish”.

Nicely done. The purple lining really goes well with the wood.
