Here’s a small gift box with a sliding lid. I trimmed the top with walnut along with the splines. Keeping the grain pattern continuous makes these kind of projects interesting and they’re easy to make.
Thanks for looking.

This is a very nice box and the wood is wonderful.

Love the contrasts in the wood and walnut. Is that ambrosia maple. I’ve only seen it a couple of times at Woodcraft in Boise. Nothing like that grows out here and it’s way out of my price line.

I really like the corners on this box the continuous grain and the splines look great. Nice work.

Would a bottle of wine fit inside?

It’s just a little under the size needed for a wine bottle.
