This box made from walnut and leopard wood with ebony accent on lid and ebony splines. Measures 8w x 11L x 6 D and insert tray is 2 /14 deep. Made for a friend after her husband passed to keep memories, w/ brass plaque on the inside. This is my third attempt at splines and second at hinge mortise and both turned out a lot better on this box. I like the wood combination. Thanks to the LJ Boxguy for tips in his blog on making the finger groove. Let me know what you think, like or dislike?
