For this project I wanted to venture into some better wood, and away from straight sides, so here is what I came up with.

For me it was quite an undertaking. Lots of careful bandsawing and sanding. First time working with walnut, man its some great wood.

Overall I feel this is my best effort to date. Hope you all agree!

All comments welcome.

Great looking box, I like the design, very smooth looking curves. The mitered top adds character. Very good build.

I really like the box design and the handle too , but I can’t decide if I like the handle on this box. The box has a very elegant design , but the handle almost seems comical in comparison . I have to wonder if it was either solid Maple or Walnut if it might be more in tune with the rest of the design. Or if the width of the Maple stripes were the same as the side stripes ? JMHO
