African Cherry Box with leaf and Maple accents. A simple design to highlight the beauty of the African Cherry. this box has maple splines and leaf center vein. The lid is hinged with hidden steel pins, and the leaf acts as a handle and lid stop. Approx. 5.5. x 8.5 inches with hand-rubbed poly finish.

You’re making some really nice boxes. Your leaf lift detail is unique and particularly attractive and appropriate. A well designed feature. What are the insides like? I presume they are no less extraordinary than the exteriors? Keep ‘em coming. I await your next.
