Nice box! Love the base!
Wondering how many coats of poly you used? How do find wax over poly works for you?

Well done. I like the overall design and the choice of woods. You know we love details. How big is it? What kind of hinge is it?

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and so little time!

That’s a nice looking box and the combination of maple & purpleheart is a good one. I’m sure your nice will like it very much
