hmm, very nice, I’m tagging this one to come back to. Looks pretty straight forward with very nice results.
Another nice but reasonably simple gift (christmas is coming)

Nice! You used an inlay bushing to make the box opening and the top match?

I was wondering about Charlie’s question too. Great box. I like paduak as well.

inlay bushing huh, hmm. I was thinking bandsaw box, then take a slab off of the center cut and glue to the top, perfect match. The inside pic looks like blade striations, I assumed bandsaw box, although I cant see an entry cut.
Inquiring minds want to know….....

Great little box. I’m with Colorado, The bottom part of the top is part of the waste cut out of the middle and glued back to the top.

That is correct. A thin slab is sliced off the middle waste piece and glued to the bottom of the lid. This way the lid stays on and is a perfect fit. And by the way, the reason you don’t see an entry cut is that I entered WITH THE GRAIN of the wood. So when it is glued and clamped shut again you never notice it. It also helps to use a thiner bandsaw blade with very little tooth set.
Also, making the middle piece (inside hole) asymmetrical makes it easy to replace the lid the correct way. Do the same thing to your pumpkin lids for Halloween.

I wondered if that might be it, coming in along the grain. You can see a slight discontinuity in the curve right in the front left corner in the second picture. I’m assuming that’s where you entered. You sure can’t see the actual cut though. These are definitely going on my short list.

I always find it a bit difficult to re-align the lid. Good Job looks nice

I was wondering, could you realign the waste slab by putting it on before gluing the bottom back on the box and using the box as a jig.
- with the bottom removed, not glued on yet- line up the top with the outside of the box, use a little blue painters tape to hold it in place.- glue up the waste slab and drop it down into the box onto the lid.- Hold for 30 seconds or so, long enough for the glue to tack but not long enough that any squeeze out glues the lid to the box.- remove the lid
As long as things don’t shift the slab should be pretty well aligned. I haven’t tried this, might not work at all, but I think that’s how I will try it.
