I had a piece of thick curly maple and wanted to make good use of it. This box was made from the left over wood from my walnut and curly maple box. Finished by spraying 3 coats of poly.

Simple little box made beautiful because of the attention given to the wood, joints and finish. Love it Jon. Great job.

Jon, this is a gorgeous box. You chose a nice wood combination which complimented one another well.

Smooth, very smooth. I like it’s simple boldness having the splines in a complementary tone.

Very nice. I don’t believe there is a better combination than maple and walnut! And you certainly made them shine with your workmanship and finishing.

Great box!

Are your skills diminishing or weren’t even trying? In the past you’ve had such better pieces of specisial art! Jon, if you wish to albedo flux some of your boxes I would gladly show you how master craftsmen do it. Other than that your H II regions look fairly parallel in contrast with Wien’s Law of molecular lumber excitation.

Keep going kid, you are fastly improving,
Cheers!

p.s. Last summer in my expedition to the central African plain, this helps me reminisce and reminds me of a circa 800 A.D Nigerian mourning box used to hold the ashes of the deceased.. X )
