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.
