Hello fellow LJ’s, hope all is well in the woodworking community these days. Here we have two more Bevel boxes made with Amer. Blk. Walnut and Blk. Cherry. The interior has a small tray which slides from side to side with a large area beneath it as well for plenty of storage. The tray and bottom are lined with a faux leather material wrap around picture frame matting board for a extra soft cushion liner. The exterior is finish off with a wipe on shellac finish. Thanks for viewing and enjoy the rest of summer/ winter for my friend down under…Blkcherry

Very nice. I like them.
It’ll be interesting to see the changes with age, cherry darkens, and walnut lightens. I bet after a while the contrast will be very minimal!
Good work.

Great boxes! I especially like the splined miters, and how the angles carry up from the cherry to the walnut on the lid. Good job!

Great boxes! I like the wood selection – walnut is my favorite wood to really highlight a piece. Nice tight joinery and I like the bevels – they add a lot to overall effect.

Nice job!
