This is a version of my simple box from some plans I found in a magazine. I made this for my wife for Chirstmas. It is made out of walnut sides and a quartersawn oak lid. The keys for the spline joints are out of maple. Because I did not want to give her an empty box, I made a small heart out of the same oak the lid is made out of with walnut joining the two halves. And yes box making is addictive because I want to make another small on with hand cut dovetails next. Oh joy!

Basic boxes by Doug Stowe,
That was my first thought when I saw this box design. It looks great. I have been working off this book myself and the book is excellent.
