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

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…
