Fantastic boxes. The bookmatched tops are a good look. Maple seems to go soo well with both walnut and purpleheart.

Great design and build.

Keep it up.

@bigike – Thanks! I built the boxes as one piece, cut the lids off, and friction fit the purpleheart on the inside to be a bit higher than the bottoms. The lids fit real nice.
