Here is another box that I recently completed.
The body of the box and tray are African Mahogany, the lid and tray bottom are Birdseye/curly maple, and the lid border, corner keys and tray support are Purpleheart.
This is basically my own design (although there’s nothing here that hasn’t been done before I’m sure), and I think the combination of woods turned out very well.
The bottom is just felt lined, and a piece of black ribbon acts as a lid support.
The finish is gloss wipe on poly, sanded to 400 grit, then rubbed out with 0000 steel wool and paste wax.
Thanks very much for looking, and commenting with your thoughts!
