I’ve been wanting to build a similar project, but the tiles are very expensive. Could you please let me know where you purchased your’s.

Your box turned out beautifully.

This is a really nice box. I particularly like the lid design and had one of these on my to-do list but never could find the time for it.

Nice job on the build.

The box is about 8×8 x 5. I built mine after looking at an example from Schlabaugh and Sons in a gift shop. Wood Magazine ran an article on a very similar design in Nov 2006 (issue 173 page 68). Their design has a hinged lid while my lid is not connected.

The finish was a bit a powdered red mahogany dye dissolved in General Finishes oak stain. Topcoated with General wiping oil/varish satin poly.
