Sushi box

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.

Hey Beth, nice to meet you.

That is a very nice little box, you got skills.
I would love to see a picture of the inside, and maybe a little insight on how you shaped it.
