Here is the 2010 version of my yearly travel box. This one has seen a year of use.

It is made of cherry with cocobolo miter keys and a bookmatched cocobolo panel for the top. This one has butt hinges and a magnetic catch at the front. Finish is Armor Seal as I recall…

This was a simple box to make although finishing the cocobolo top was a predictable challenge.

Triple ditto on that top. Normally see book matching on big pieces. This looks gorgeous even though it’s smaller. Wonderful piece Richard!

Thanks for all the comments. The bookmatched top was fun to make. That cocobolo is some oily stuff!
