Thick Figured walnut for the lid front and back and tiger maple for the sides and bottom. I wanted a minimal look when closed so I used brass barrel hinges and brass chain stay.

The dovetails went ok because I practiced before some see picture 6.

I have been starting to do one dovetail in the morning to get better at it. I am starting to realize that its just practice.

This is available on my etsy site:

Beautiful! I love the contrast in thickness between the two woods, it gives the box a very unique look when open.

To make the finger lift I used a round file and a 1 inch dowel with sandpaper.

Outstanding corner joints. Different types of wood make it more beuatiful.
