Harmony ... I am a big fan of Koa wood, but sometimes, pairing it with other woods allows me to stretch my meager supply. In this box, I was able to use some narrow strips of Koa with cherry strips on the edges for the sides and lift, and cherry for the lift-off lid. The color of the cherry plays well with the koa and provides a calm contrast to the figured sides and lift.
The box is approx. 6×10 inches and 4 inches tall. The corners are a dado joint, and the bottom is dadoed-in cherry plywood covered with soft brown leather. The lid is rabbeted to drop into the box about 1/8 inch. The entire box is finished with several coats of satin poly.
