With all the fantastic boxes that all you folks make I have made a rather understated box for a friend. Hoping to match an Asian theme. I made this from African mahogany with a Koa veneer bottom, and the bottom of the trays are a cool 50s linoleum flooring that I found at an old house. A box of unused 9×9 tiles which look like cork sort of. My friend turned 50 last week and her jewelry box is an old cigar box that I hope will go to another use now. She inherited an amazing collection of Chinese art work carvings a while ago from her wonderful uncle so I built this box thinking it would match the display cabinets that the collections are in. No hinges for the top but if you look closely you can see small routered finger pulls to lift off the top. Hope you all like it!
