My latest box design and different from previous boxes that I have posted ,the thought on this one was a contemporary design .
I am a bit tired of straight sides so this one is a seven degree angle for the sides and applied corner trim and a tray to match with a lift handle that follows the exterior of the box .I did not bother with dividers as most of the boxes will be used for different purposes and dividers would just be frustration .
The box is made from hard maple and American walnut for the trim , hinges are SOSS 10mm barrel hinges and the tray and box bottom are lined with burgundy velvet sown to poster board and finishedd with lacquer .
The size is 11” W x 7 1/2” D x 5” H

Enjoy and thanks for taking a look !
Comments always welcome .

Nice box. I like it a lot.
Nice details through out, but the maple keeps it simple too.

Another masterpiece! I like the wood combo, and the angled sides with the corner accents. This box has a simpler elegance about it!

I’m looking at this new box, and looking again at the delicate touches. Elegant! Especially the integration of the handle with the sides.

I’m also curious about the feet?

Another Top Three for sure!

Looks awesome!
