Mango/Koa box

Here’s a little box I made out of scrap wood just to try out a new technique. I used my new router table and a dove tail bit to create the a sliding koa lid.
Finished it with 3 coats of wipe-on poly.
The mango has a lot of termite damage but it gives it an interesting look I think.

I am planning on using it for some of my extra shop hardware.

Good idea and technique. I can use this for glass insert too. I can let glass cutters to provide me a 20 degree angle and could be inserted sideways. I am always thinking how to flush glass on top to a moulding that will not be accidentally push out from below.. Thanks for posting. Enlightening.

Nice box. like the detail on the end of the sliding lid, too. How did you find cutting the koa? Did you dull any cutters with the inclusions in it?
