Okay, so there is nothing fancy about this, but I had to post it because it is the first thing built with lumber run through my new Ridgid 13” planer. It’s also the first angled feet I’ve cut on the table saw. Finish is wipe-on satin poly.

Very nice work and by the looks of it the planer worked out nicely.

Hey Charlie! Very nice… You’re becoming a pro with the inlay. I think the feet turned out great.

Superb box – walnut is my favorite wood and this is a great example of why. If I were going to make a box of a single species of wood, it would definitely be walnut as you have done here.

Love the inlay – it enhances the box immensely.

Mind revealing how you did the top? I’ve never seen one quite like this before.
