I used aromatic cedar to frame a wood called greenheart, a wood that comes from south america, the 4 sides i used brazilian walnut & a maple bottom. The corners are mitered & i put 2 sets of dovetail keys on the corners, the top one is purpleheart [ it didn’t show up to clear on this photo ] & the bottom one is yellowheart, brass butt hinges, brass knob & chain inside . I had to make a jig for my table saw to cut the bevel on the top edge of the greenheart lid , i used watco natural danish oil & wipe-on poly, then minwax for the final finish, box measures 7 1/2” X 4” X 4” high. This was a first for this kind of box for me, it was fun to make.
