Just finished this small Walnut Box. I was playing around with making a nice elegant Walnut box and when I started sketching I kept wanting to add a line or some decorative element to the top, that is how I came up with racing strips. So I cut a rough walnut piece and added the 2 Maple strips, I really liked it so I decided to make it go around the back and front as well. I mitered the corners and had to make sure all the lines lined up that a little bit of a challenge but it all worked out. I even made a lid handle with the stripes and place it in line. I went with antiqued hinges with balls on the sides that I really liked. I lined it with suede and finished it with a lot of coats of lacquer, then I sanded and polished it to a glassy finish. Hope y’all like it.
