I like everything about it. The dark black handle is really nice. Great shape to the box top. It’s on my favorites list!

-- Happy woodworking!

The chamfered pin extensions and the (I assume) table-sawn raised panel really elevate this fine box. Super!

I like these boxes. Simple but elegant. They just yell out “hold me, open me”

Love the box! Birds eye maple is such an amazing wood to work with. Great job. Curious…I would like to see the side, to see how the joints are from that view.
