This box was made from Ambrosia Maple with a Curly Shedua top and base plate. The accent spline is walnut. It has half lap joints which I cut with a dovetail saw then pared to fit. I glued the box up using two band clamps, cut the groove for the spline on the table saw and then shaped the box with a block plane. The spline was added last. This was my first attempt at shaping wood with hand tools.
