Very Nice Greg, I am wondering though, are the holes in the dividers just for looks?

Wow, very nice project. Love the marble wood figure and grain. Your skills with boxes are the best.

Randy…Thanks…! the holes in the dividers make it easier for fingers to grab to lift out the trays.
Monte…thanks…the marblewood has such a beautimous grain and combines well with the Padauk.
CalgaryGeoff…I find that the more I sand the marblewood the more of the fine grain seems to show up and it polishes really well.

Nice details on the inside.

Another beauty! That marblewood looks a lot like spalted wood. The mini dovetails add some class to the dividers. Do you have a smaller than usual dovetail bit or?

What a fantastic box and great wood choice! What, exactly, is the red(ish) material on the bottom that looks like gator skin? I really want to find something like this! What a great choice for lining the bottom!

Beautiful box, Greg! Just saw Marblewood in person for the first time a few days ago. It pairs well with the Padauk. Thanks for sharing.

Wow, what an amazing box Greg, the Marblewood is beautiful and with the contrast in colour in the Padauk and your sculpting makes for a stunning box…awesome.
