This box was my first attempt at simple inlay. Using an inlay router bit/bushing for the lid and tablesaw and chisel for the sides.

WOW, the box is an absolute work of art. I do like the contrasting wood design, you should enter this in the Winter 2010 contest at http://lumberjocks.com/contests
Is the inside of the box tapered like the outside or is it straight down?

Fantastic box. The corners are a great touch and the contrasts work well on the inlays.
Keep it up.

Bruce, you executed a pretty nice build on this box. I like its design and the contrasting woods compliment one another well.

Nice box. I think I know how you did the corners, but I will have to try it soon. It’s not as simple as I first thought. Good Job!

Excellent! A very nice design! I like the two stripes on the front – I suspect they are the same length, but the angled corners make the top one look longer…
