Brent, this is a gorgeous box. Cherry and maple are my personal favorite combination and the maple you used in this project has a lot of visual interest. The offset keys add an interesting feature as well.

Well done.

I believe it’s Quilted Maple. No matter what you call it , it is beautiful to say the least….
