great little box. With the seamless continuation of the grain pattern it took a few moments for my eyes to adjust their perspective and see cut-out centre section. very nice.

Wow at first glance you cant see the seam. Without reading the description I was thinking “what a beautiful block of wood…” Nice box though, great choice of material!
