9×71/2×51/2 Walnut and maple box with tray and geometric engraving on top. The top shape was carved with a piranha cnc. The dovetails were cut with a jig. Dovetail shaped feet raise the box base to give a better profile to the shape and add some depth. An upper tray completes the box.

Got to love the precision of a machine made box!
