Very nice box, I really like working with Zebrawood. I like the curved top !

Welcome to LJ’s, I am sure you will find that this is the best site in town! It’s just a little addicting.
I’ve only been a member for a few months but have gained several wonderful friends and a wealth of knowledge and help from the “masters” here on LJ’s.

What are the dimensions of the box and what is the finish?

Thanks for sharing

Hey I just started that same box today in maple with walnut ends :)
...then I couldn’t find my dado blade :(

Nice box!

This is a great looking box. Often you see contrasting woods in a small project like this but your choice of wood has such striking contrast it is not needed here. Your simplification in chosing one very nice wood highlights the features of your craftsmanship which is top notch.

Great box from zebrawood.
I like zebrawood as much as I like zebracrossing, (but not zebra-puzzle….LOL)

Vincent, welcome to LJ. The wood is beautiful. Great choice. I’ve made a few of these using my own variation of this pattern and have four in the process. I’ve not used Zebrawood before, but love the grain.

Thanks for posting it.

Nice looking box; I love the Zebrawood. I noticed one other post that says they are building the same box. Is there a set of plans on this one? Thanks,
