For the last number years I have been making boxes. Big boxes, little boxes, large boxes, small boxes and just plain weird boxes. I find making these very therapeutic for me. I give, let me rephrase, my wife gives a lot of them away. This is the latest creation to satisfy my obsession. The top of this box is Canarywood with a cherry frame. The box itself is all cherry with a ply bottom. The frame is engraved (with a CNC) and all the other sides have a v-grooved panel. I turned the lift knob out of walnut. Fun project now on to another.

I’m not sure you meant to give me such a great idea to recover some clumsy edges on a failed project. Thank you! I’ll give you some credit when I post.

dgreen, there are lots of nice details here. I like the carved sides, textured top, and choice of woods. All the little details around the letter “G” are well done. While it too is well done, the lift knob looks out of place and detracts from the design. This is a wonderful box and I hope you continue to share your “therapy” with us.
