I made this small box out of left over cherry and maple. Tung oil and wax finish. Circles are easy with plug cutters and Forstner bits.

I really like boxes, and this one is certainly different, different that it stands out from the others, really like it, the handle, dots along with the choice of scraps as you say sure made this one hell of a looker.

Nice clean design. The woods work well together and the accent “dots” with the handle design goes well together. Thanks for posting!
