Came out nice. I have never heard of blackwood and huon pine. Are those indigenous to somewhere unique? Kind of looks like walnut and pine.

Well done, a nice blend of Australian timbers and skill!
Huon Pine is a timber all of it’s own, most of the supply is sourced / mined from flooded rivers.

Nice box. Fit and finish are great. Contrasting woods look good.

This is a great looking box. The lines are very sinuous, very flowing. I love Huon Pine… a friend from Australia sent me a turned box for my collection years ago out of Huon and it has a smooth silky feel to it. The wood selection on this box contrasts very well without being overdone.

Exceptionally beautiful bandsaw box. Can you tell the combination of wood used?

I was going to say the even Tony Ward would be proud of this one, but I see he has already weighed in on it.
