The first box made with the new box clamp I posted recently.
The box turned out perfectly square and was a breeze to complete , the finish is a new bees wax process I came up with and took about an hour from start to finish and is glass smooth with a satin sheen.
On this one I used copper for accents on the lid lift,tray handle and also for the leather hinge plates which I think work well with the birds eye maple and jatoba.
This box will go to a friend as a gift along with a little tapper mallet .
Comments and questions are always appreciated .

Saw the video. Great demonstration. You’re starting to build a library of videos. :<)

Nice wood combo, and I like the little copper accents…..sort of bridges the gap between the BI maple and the jatoba. The little flat feet are appropriate, as well. Great craftsmanship as well.

That maple and jatoba go together really well.

Nicely made and nice design.
A few interesting do-dads make this nice to look at too.
And wonderful wood selection.
