Walnut box with maple lid and splines. The handle is made with mahogany and metal handle. The handle was made by a talented metal working friend of mine and I think it turned out quite nice.
This was my first time working with walnut and I thought it quite nice to work with and I really like how it took the finish of Danish oil and wax.
One last thing, I’m not sure what kind of wood the bottom of the box is and if anyone knows I sure would appreciate it. It was a board given to me from a left over project. Anyway, hope you all enjoy it.

Thanks everyone! My friend is going to be building more handles for me so I’m looking forward to incorporating more of them into future boxes.

This is kinda funny. I saw this project this morning on here and thought it was pretty cool. An hour later I walked into CKM’s office, not realizing he was CKM, and saw the project on his desk.. did a double take.. came back here to confirm and realized it was the same one.. very nice box dude.. I’m going to have to hit up our friend for some handles myself!
