This box has been sitting in my shop for as long as I can remember. It has been in various stages of completion for a very long time. I would find scraps that I thought might fit the bill for what was needed and set them aside. In between projects or when I needed to take a break from what I was working on, I would work on this. This started out as a place to put my marking gauges. I slowly put it together and this the outcome. The top is a piece of deck grade plywood. The border of the lid is walnut and cherry. I like the way the plywood came out. The box is cherry with poplar wedges on the corner. Let me know what ya’ll think, good or bad.

Nice job on the box. When are you going to make something that uses the inlay you made on your last project? I loved that inlay and i can not wait to see you put it on a project.

Qmoney, That inlay trim has been slotted for a entertainment center for my brother. The ball is in his court to get me a design of his choice. He lives in Louisiana and I live in Texas, so it is a telephone/E-mail communication situation. It’s coming…..
