This box is similar to the previous one except that I used rosewood for the accents and aspen for the main body. I added miter keys and improved the hinges. The top is from the same piece of unknown trunkwood I used on the last one (I got a bunch of slices). Overall, I am much happier with the way this one turned out. It measures
8 1/4×9 1/4×3 3/4”. The finish is 5 thinned coats of poly, then waxed.
Terry has since requested that I show a photo of the inside. I have since sent the box off, but I did find a pic. The inside of the lid is oak veneer I sliced from firewood and the bottom is from the same log only a little thicker. Pretty plain. The next one will incorporate a tray or small till or something.
