This one was made to one day present to someone special for memories to come and I used a little detail in each area.

Made this box so it will keep special items for someone to treasure and included a way to lift the box to utilize a lower area secret storage.

The box dimensions are 6” high including the lower tray while the width is 6 1/2” with length of 12 1/4”.

There are 2 inner trays with have 3 compartments which are 4” each .

I used special larger decorative hinges for the box.

After completing the top I decided to use some paduak inlay diamonds and some maple corners for accent.

There are 2 1” pull rings on each side to lift the inner box when tray access is needed.

Very nice box and well designed. The pull rings compliment it nicely.

Very nice! I forget the name of the joint at the moment…brain drain…but I like the use of the…I’ll call it an outer box/finger joint. Maybe someone can remind me what it’s actually called.

Believe you are referencing the splines which are larger than normally installed but wanted to break up the walnut .
