Robert, this is a fine design and a great job of finish. I like the way your photo shows the maple gain. Nice work on the photo as well. I would have used walnut instead of cherry on the top, but your choice looks good too.

The slanted sides add a nice touch to the design and the look of the splines. The contrast in colors appeals to the eye. A hinged lid often is easier for the user of the box. This is an impressive box. Adding dimensions to your posts helps readers know the scale of your work. Keep boxing and keep posting.
