Design-wise, this is just a variation on something I’ve done before. I really liked the padauk and maple color combination, though. Finish is Danish oil followed by satin oil-based poly, with a coat of paste wax for good measure. :-)

Thanks for looking. Comments, criticism, and questions are all welcome.

Oh Charlie, If Australia Don were only here. He’d let you have it. Kinda like this ” although you show strong atributes of becoming a fledgling box maker I assure you you have a long way to go. The lines are strong and the details are weak but you hold your own with the conundrums. Therefore I give you a B+ for effort and an e on conundrums. Personally Charlie ole buddy, I think its a bute. Dang this baby is getting heavy.

Thank you Steve, Allison, & Jim….you guys need to spend less time on the computer. :-)

Charlie, I have to criticize you for making such a nice box, it’s beautiful.

Thats really nice looking!! I have a bunch of padauk and no ideas to go with it. I’m glad I saw this box, I didnt realize padauk would finish so nice.

Another beautiful job Charlie. I love those woods together. Just when I think I’m starting to catch on, you LJ’s feed me a piece of humble pie. Thanks for sharing!
