This is a box I completed a couple of weeks ago. I used a number of different wood species for this little fellow – including maple, morado, padauk, lacewood, and jatoba. Thanks for looking.

Very nice – are the legs attached by tenons?

I second Charlie’s appraisal of this wonderful box (with legs, Deb!).

Great looking box. You combined several design elements, like the hidden splined miters, the legs, the floating top – along with an interesting combination of woods – to make a fantastic looking box. Well done.

Very cool! In my opinion, legs are hard to pull off; but these look great.
