The Cove Box presents a unique and interesting profile when viewed from any angel, due to the asymmetrical cove which has been carved into the box. The box features a lift lid which is topped by a hand carved handle and splined miter joints for added stability. This box is made of lace wood and birdseye maple.

nice looking box! The differing length splines really work with the cove shape and are a nice additional touch.

The box looks great, but in looking back at what I like about it, other than the wood, I guess I like the balance in its design/proportions.
