From last winter: first go-around working with mitered corners and miter keys. Combination of Maple and Padauk, and finished with tung oil and poly. Bottom slides out so you can refill with more Kleenex. I extended one end of the box so my wife can put her alarm clock on top. Fairly enjoyable and straightforward project.

First of all padouk and maple combination look great! This open top/side variation is verry practical- easy to reach. Great looking design!

Damn, that is one fancy Kleenex box! I agree that the combo of Maple and Padouk look great together.

Happy wife, happy life. Good job!
