great looking box. The rays in the QSWO look real nice and pop with the finish you applied.

I like it, really cool looking. Where did you buy the cut nails from?

A very nice box but the ray fleck in that QSWO is over the top!

I made 4 of them like this. The one in the picture is made from quartersawn white oak. Two of the four were from birds eye quartersawn white oak. I bought the cut nails from Horton Brasses.

Very nice! Did you hinge the tops, or do they slide on?
