Very nice box. That is very inspiring! I will remind it when thinking about making Christmas gifts for my daughters.

As David said, I also thought it was hammered copper. I think you picked up the perfect figured veneer for it.

How did you joined the miters of the door? Biscuits? What did you used as finish? Based on the wall switch plate, I believe your box is about 12” high and 7” wide?

Bill, this is another nice piece. The mahogany compliments the cherry well. And the figure in the mahogany adds visual interest to the piece. I have never used the two woods in combination before but I will definately have to consider it for a future project.

Thanks for all the comments,Serge the box is 17” tall and 9” wide,the miters on the door are just glued,maybe I should have re enforced the miters but they are holding for now,finish is a wioe on poly.
