I made this simple little box out of maple with a 1/4” cherry skin attached on 5 sides. Then with a very crude homemade router jig, I cut the arcs into the box on 3 sides with a radius sign/lettering bit, breaking through the cherry skin into the maple to give it a two-tone look. Finished with Formby’s Tung Oil. Thanks for looking.

Now this is nice and puts a different “twist” on box building!

Nice! Out of the box, very good for a crude jig ;-)

Some of the best router jigs are crude ones. If it works use it. Interesting box, Doug.

Okay… I’m impressed. Really impressed. I’ve got to learn how to do this. Very, VERY nice work.
