I can’t remember the name of the wood this box is made from and I can’t find the left over piece with the name on it. LOL. Anyway, the cross is made from birdseye maple. Thanks for taking a look.

I really like the way you integrated the cross into the lift tab.

Thanks everyone. I found the scrap of wood that was left over. The box is made from Persimmon.
