Hi everyone-

So this is the third of 5 I’m building. A little variation on the previous ones. This has a diamond shaped key in the corner joint, moulded feet, and cherry striped inlay on the walnut lid. Finished with danish oil, shellac, and paste wax.

Thanks for looking.

Again a good looking box my only observation is that the 2 strips on the top create a cross grain situation if they are glued into a dado any movement or shrinkage could cause the top panel to split, just something to think about love those corner deco’s
