I made these for Christmas presents. The plans come from the May, 2007 Wood Magazine. Thought I’d try them for the challenge of making the lids. They turned out pretty good but could be better with more practice with the shop built jigs. Ran out of time to try again on the lids. Saved the jigs so might try again some day. One is zebrawood and the other bubinga. The handles are walnut. Both are finished with tung oil. I originally planned to put bubinga lid on zebrawood box and vice versa but decided they looked better with box and lid made from the same wood. The contrast just didn’t look right to me. Wish the pix were better.
