I made this box a while back. As I recall, it was my first experiment with using contrasting woods in the same project. Also, I was looking for curves, so I just went with butt joints and rounded them off with the router.

Very nice. I like to experiment with contrasting woods, too. Your box is great looking.

Cherry is always a great contrast with Walnut. However Charlie, this is out of the extra ordinarily really great category in contrast and construction. This box rates a double “Wow”!!!!

FANTASTIC box!
Great choice and pick of wood. I like the ronded corners, too. It makes for a nice change.

Very professional photo, too!

God Bless,

Bill, it’s about 11×13 as best I can recall. The photo was taken on my workbench. I just photoshopped it onto a fabric background. Man I love digital photography!

By the way, did you notice my post on your profile page that we are neighbors?

Charkie, that is one fine box. Combo of the timbers is just right!

BTW, I’m only about 1 1/2 hr away from you myself. Practically neighbors, too!

Great job.I’ve never tried the walnut cherry combo but after seeing your box I will now.The graiin pattern on the front is beautiful and the sap wood at the bottom really adds to the project.
