I made this box out of hickory last year when I bought my Delta Dovetail Omnijig
Finish is Shellac and wax.

Nice work. I like the angle and the way you mad the handle. Joints look nice and tight as well. Whats the inside look like?

That’s a very unusual box and I like it.

Thanks everyone!

Ken, the inside looks empty. ;)
I’ll get a picture of it with the lid off when I get a chance and upload it.

Thanks Ike, it really wasn’t any harder to do, it just took some trial and error to figure out how to position the boards on the jig. Once I figured that out everything else was the same. To do this you just have to work in the middle of the jig rather than on an end so that the boards have room on both the left and right sides.
