Great job on this one, I really like the grain pattern in that walnut.

Amazing wood grain showing…look up “slow closing hinges” for his safety.

Not to take away from the fine job you did on the box, but that wood is amazing!

Outstanding wood and an amazing box! Superlatives don’t do it justice!

Thanks all – Ya, I’m guessing the kid won’t even see the thing until he’s in his 20’s, but still fun to give em a hard time about stealing from their kids! – I did order the torsion hinges and finish hardware from Rockler – will retro-fit….just in case the kids do get to use them. The lid has an adjustment that can be taken off later so it won’t fit air tight. I’m thinking about having it prof. photographed – my pictures don’t do justice – best figured walnut I’ve ever come across in one board.
