Ribbon handled box. Exquisite birds eye maple found at Dallas Woodcraft for only $7 a bd ft. Handle is lacewood with walnut trim. Very challenging detail work in this long weekend project. Plans came from Woodsmith plans.

I like the handle design. I may have to copy that.

Thanks all. The finish is three coats of Watco natural oil finish with three coats of Johnson paste wax. Love the soft sheen.
