Here is a box that I made for my Dad as a Father’s Day gift. I churned it out pretty quickly, so it’s not perfect, but I like the overall effect. It’s made out of “country” hard maple, walnut, and padauk for the splines. The box came out a little trapezoidal due to my rushed cutting, but it’s hard to tell. 5 coats of clear gloss wipe-on poly for the finish. Hinges are just bolted to the back, as I ran out of time… it would have been nice to mortise them in properly.
