The handle for the box is a stick I found while my wife and I were on vacation on Washington State’s coast. The top is curly cherry that I was given by a woodworker friend who moved to a different state. The box sides are maple.

I began this project by determining a desired approximate size. I then used the golden rectangle equation to achieve my final dimension. The lifts for the handle were cut from walnut scrap. I then drilled through them for mounting to the box top. I filed the top of the lifts to get a decent fit to the stick which was then epoxied in place. The finish is Minwax Wipe On Poly. The stick was left unfinished.

Thanks for looking!

I’m the guy who moved to a different state. Love the box especially the curly cherry. You certainly have an artistic touch. See you in September- let’s get some more wood together.
