Cool looking box with that spalted maple. Good job utilizing hinges that you have.

David, I like the cherry grain, especially in the back of the box. Nice neat splines. The rounded top shape used to thin your inserted top edges adds interest. Did you use a biscuit cutter to make the slot for your lift on the front? It would have been nice to see a corner shot so we could see how the grain flows around the corners. A shot like this.

As you can tell, I am in the habit of rounding my corners and edges until my boxes look like used bars of soap. You have made a fine gift for your friend and probably have had fun doing it. Keep boxing and keep posting.

At least you didn’t use a radio alarm saw like the Craigslist thread is fun of mocking 8^)

That pillowed top really adds some “punch”!
