Cherry/Walnut stash box This was a fun one. In addition to the feet, the Asian style box features Half-lap, splined and dowelled corners. and the sides have a rounded profile. Made from salvaged cherry and walnut, approx. 6×9 inches and finished with hand-rubbed poly. The lift off lid has an eighth inch rabbet to nest inside the box.

Another nice box. Your handling of the design elements in the Asian style is both skillful and attractive. I generally do not care for feet on a box, but your treatment here (and your last box) works fine. The laminated lid is another element that works well with the lift design. Another difficult act to pull off without looking like a cutting board, but it works here. I admire a boxmaker who can make these details work. Details matter. My compliments. Keep ‘em coming!

What an interesting looking box. This box just seems to grab your attention with details such as the curved sides, feet and handle. You chose a nice set of woods as well.

This is a nice project and it certainly got my attention.
