Great looking box. The wood combo is very nice. I just finished some boxes using curly maple and wipe on poly for the first time. Its a great wood to work with. Great job!

This is a gorgeous box. You chose a nice combination of woods as well. Walnut and maple compliment one another well.

Gorgeous box, with my two favorite woods. I don’t believe anyone can go too wrong using maple and walnut for boxes. Love the strips – inlay or glue up? Either way, they accent the box nicely.
