This is a little box made of Brazilian woods vinhático and braúna (a.k.a. Brazilian ebony).

Finishing was sanding up to grit 400 and beeswax.

Menini, you have used some beautiful woods here. I like your use of uneven splines. You can match the grain on three corners of your box if you cut the lengths of your sides first and then cut the 45s for the corners. Of course you also need to keep track of the order of your cuts and the top and bottom of your starting board. Keep boxing and keep posting.

As you can tell, I like rounded corners.

Looks very nice. Beautiful wood and nicely fabed. Great advice from Boxguy.

Boxguy-
Nice tight joints … splines are such great looking details and will hold that miter together.

Hi everyone! Than you all for the comments!

I really appreciated your advices! In this case I was not able to match the grain once the box was made of reclaimed wood and the pieces had not the length enough. But I will remember this hint in the future.

As always your work is very beautiful!

Regards!
