Made this for my niece’s graduation gift. Tiger maple and walnut. Used the jigs described by Doug Stowe in FWW last December (volume 201). Used the technique of resawing the maple so that there would be a continuous grain flow all the way around the box. lid is just air dried walnut as are the splines. Put some suede in the bottom of the box just so items dropped in don’t hit the bottom like a drum.
Finish is Waterlox original. Brushed on then wiped down after about ten minutes – 3 coats.
