This little box was thrown together with some scraps laying around the shop. Woods include Cherry, Maple, Birch, and Cocobolo. The Top is Birch with a failed Cocobolo segmented disk for turning I acquired from a friend. Lap joints on the box. No finish, Just something sittin on my bench to throw things in I don’t want covered in saw dust. Thanks for looking.

Hi Spoonman, Great looking little box. Looks like you are getting the inlay thing down.
Great Job.

I like it. It has purpose, and interesting design. I like that the lid fits into the case. Any hints as to how you fit the inlay into the top?
