The cool thing about this project was the results I got from book matching. The box is made from Sapele using a small brass rod as a hinge. What I see in the grain is a couple of cookie monsters facing each other. The finish is an oil and wax mix. NOTE: the backside of the lid is from another box like this one but I gave this one as a gift and forgot to get a photo.

I see why you put the actual book match on the inside. That top is really dramatic, and the finish enhances it nicely.

Sorry, but that’s my fault. The lid is from another box, (see NOTE above).
