Purchased some rough cut walnut from a local guy. I milled to size a few weeks ago and have been letting it dry out. The lid was some stock I had laying around and resawed. The finger joints are 1/4” and the box dimensions are about 7”L x 5.25”W x 3.25”H. My hinge pin locations are a tad off, not sure how I did that? Finished with Danish oil.

yeah, I noticed the right pin is nearly .003 forward from the left pin. lol

great looking box – is the lid spalted or stained sap wood ? either way, it looks great
