some recent boxes with lift out trays
first is from some padauk i found with a different grain pattern than i have seen lid is hickory
lined with felt
2nd and 3rd are made with some quilted walnut i got last month this finally gave me a use for this quilted maple i have been holding on too. i think the work for this is spalting in the maple not sure looks cool
all have wooden hinges tried something different on the last 2 boxes for a handle not sure if i am sold on it yet. sizes are #1 12inches by 5 1/2 #2 and 3 are 8 inches by 5

Very nice boxes. Well constructed. The miters look great and the selection of wood is excellent. The curly, ambrosia maple is fantastic.

THat quilted walnut is gorgeous. And you are right about that padauk being out of the ordinary.

Great look to the boxes. Gives me an idea, I think all of us have wood scraps left over from a bigger project, which we know we will use later, but its just cluttering up our storage area. Good for you, I like how the maple looks rippled on your last box.

Excellent job! I’d like to see details on the wooden hinges. You know, installing hinges on a lift lid box is got to be the hardest part of the box building process! I’m always struggling to get the lid to be flush around all edges once the hinges are installed and the lid closed. Nice work!
