Those are some pretty dominant stripes in the maple. Great selection. Nice work.

If the wife likes iit, dont be saying anything more.
doubleDD has the stripes covered.
Iwasaki files ? I will need to go look them up, for my own education.
I am seriuosly thinking of replicating your curves work, so standby for a metric version soon.
A overall stumnning box, and workmans ship worthy of credit !
Well done !!

Excellent use of the “unintended” tiger maple. I occasionally find tiger maple in the stock at big box stores, sometimes the whole board and other times just part of a board, and I hang onto it for WW projects. Funny thing is it’s considered reject wood by many, because the grain is all wavy-like and won’t match their cabinets or whatever the wood is intended for.
Your wife likes the box, I like the box, you’re outvoted…. it’s a nice box.
