This is the box I call Box #1 . It’s constructed of Poplar and Red Oak. The Mitered Corners contain Handmade Oak Splines for strength and added interest. The Lid lifts off with a Molded, Layered, handle that melds into the body, where inlaid material continues the motif through to the bottom. The box is lined, simply and unpretentiously with Green Felt . The Lid is Frame and Panel Construction. Inspired by a magazine article. This was my very first box. I still have it. Unbelievable that no one has bought it. I was very pleased with it then. And I’m still impressed by it.

I must admit, this is my favourite of your boxes. I like that curved top handle and fingerjoints.

At least two of my boxes were lifted from magazines. This was one of them. (Popular WW, I think). The later boxes are all mine.
