I just completed this Maple Lift top box using a design idea that has been in my thoughts for a while.
Nothing fancy but it was a fun project that is providing me with some other ideas.

That’s unique and quite attractive. I’d like to know how you did it.

id like to see another. Something that makes the lines stand out whether it be figure or a different species would be interesting.

Subtle. I like it.
You are letting the grain and texture shine.

I like this very unique ’’terrace’’ design on top.

Really like this. Interested in trying something like this. How did you create the various “levels” on the side and top? Are the inside walls also in the same pattern? Again – very neat design!

Thanks everyone…This was a quite simple mitered box that I ran through the router table with a panel raising bit that is called a step-down profile. The step down profile was used alot during the 1930’s in a lot of Art Deco styles.

We lived In New Orleans years ago and owned an old house built in 1937 that had Cypress Step-Down moulding all throughout the house for door trim, window trim and baseboard trim. It always was a design feature of the house that really appealed to me.

I’ve already made 2 more boxes using this style and plan several more. I always email past customers a photo of new work I create and have already taken a deposit for one similar to this and received inquiries from others that are interested.

I like the style Greg.
This was a common trim moulding profile during the eighties around here and sure looks good in this application .

Klaus…I guess a good moulding profile never goes out of style. i was able to get it back in 1995 when we added an addition to our 1937 house.
