This box is made from Maple with an Intarsia Hummingbird with a flower decorating the top in addition to Cherry accent along the sides. Cherry splines reinforce as well as decorate the corners. The inside contains a removable tray and a 7 inch oval mirror. The inside of the tray is lined with high quality red micro fiber while the bottom is lined with a cushioned red felt material. Hardware for the box is a gold latching clasp and quadrant 95 degree stop hinges.

The finish is multiple coats of lacquer bringing out the best in the natural wood grain and color.

All dimensions are approximate:
Outside of box: 10”W x 8”D x 5 3/8”H
Inside of box: 8 1/4”W x 6 1/4”D x 3 1/8”H
Outside of tray: 4 1/4”W x 6 1/4”D x 1 3/16”H
Inside of tray: 3 1/2”W x 5 11/16”D x 7/8”H

Nice looking box with hummingbird on top.

Really like the quadrant hinges. I have tried some recently and they are not easy. What jig did you use to install them?

I was in the process of making something like that.I give up in the favor of a butterfly and a rose inlay instead of a humming bird.Now i know how could have been.
