This is a smaller version that I am making. I really love working with Curly Maple, especially when you can find a piece that has a curl that really pops out. This box is also finished with Watco Danish oil and Black Bison wax and lined with suede cloth. Dimensions: 9×6 x 3

That is one sweet looking box. I have a few pieces of figured maple left over from a cabinet. Maybe just the right thing for those left overs.

Thanks for the post.

From the pictures you have taken it looks perfect. The wood blend together as if there were grown just for you’re box. Nice project. What a great gift.

Great looking box with the contrasting colors. I have been looking at purple heart at my local WoodCraft, but I guess it is time to buy some and use it.

Very nice bunch of boxes, an expert I know says they are one of the hardest things to make right, I agree with him. You’ve done an exquisite job on all.
