This project is made using Western Walnut and Curly Maple. The inlay is a purchased item and not handmade. The hing uses 1/8” rod on both sides and the top and back piece are mitered to keep the lid just beyond upright.

An absolutely stunning box, beautiful in its simplicity. Walnut and curly maple… you can’t get any better than that. This box so well done that it just reaches out and touches me. The gentle curve on the bottom, the nearly invisible joinery and the subdued finish truly rank this box in the extraordinary category. Great job!!!

I could look at this box over and over, thus I have added it to my favorites!

Fantastic box. Love the maple/walnut combo the best of all wood choices. Great design and build.

Keep it up.
