This piece is pretty much a complete forgery of this box by Odie. Mine has some modifications (i.e. not as intricate), but the basic design is all credited to Odie, who I believe has been selling these for many years.
This was only the second box I made using any type of double dovetail, and it was definitely a challenge which took me forever to complete. The piece is actually made as one, then after gluing it up you cut the lid off. The challenge with this is that you have to make one of the tails 1/8” larger to account for the saw blade when you cut it apart. This throws you off of the incra template for the double dovetail, but its worth it to give the joint continuity from the base to the lid.
Materials are quarter sawn white oak, mahogany, black walnut, and the bottom is some exotic veneer which I don’t remember the name of.
