I had a few extra pieces that I made for other boxes and thought I may as well put a box together and this is the result . Not sure who wants it or what I should call it but my wife said “EXTRA BOX ” .
The box is made from maple and walnut and measures 12” X 6” X 6 1/4” lined with faux suede and a couple little pewter pieces on the tray handle and Soss hinges which I find perfect for this size box .
Not sure where the inspiration came from but I guess the extra pieces what did it .
Comments and questions welcome .

Outstanding box Klaus. Many things I really like about it. The picture (?) inserted in the top, the tray handle again, excellent, soss hinges, the style and more. The maple and walnut are great together and that is my next choice for a box as soon as the walnut is dry enough. How did you know? haha. I also like the top with the winged sides to act as a tray.

Well, it’s definitely a Klaus box!

It’s got all your signature details, which I always like, including the pyramids, and a bit of an Asian look. The walnut/maple combo works well, too!

Great to see you back at the boxes, just love those details!

That tray lift handle idea deserves to be “borrowed”

Thank you guys I am glad you are liking the box and it feels good to have used those extra pieces that accumulated on the shelf instead of putting them in the firewood pile .
