Saw this in the living room and figured I could post it. This was one of my first projects (probably made it 3-4 years ago) when I was excited to get my shop-made box joint jigs in order! This project also allowed me to do small time re-sawing (other than firewood at the time) and book-matching.
I picked the maple chunks up from the scrap bin at the neighborhood cabinet shop and put this simple box together. The top has some blotchy-wavy figure in it – but not a ton. I still don’t really know if it’s “pretty” or not. I like figured woods, but don’t really have any experience working them.
I hear Don likes small wooden boxes…
