Here is a little box that I built just a proof of concept. You can see the look I was going for.

The woods are hard maple and Peruvian walnut with my standard crushed velvet interior.

The rest is sort of self explanatory.

It’s pretty hard to come with a new idea in box making, but I have to hand it to you, Gary…. I have not seen one like this before. Nice work.

Gary that’s a great idea, Did you cut the alternating layers in strips & mitre the corners,or sheets with the middle cut out? I really like it & like Charlie said it hard trying to come up with something new but there are some Lumberjocks like yourself who keep managing it
Good job

Awesome look Gary. The box-making bar has been raised significantly!

Great looking I guess that you cut the innie and the outie layer separately and then you resawed off slices and glued then together for a side.

Just my thought.

Very inventive.

Great concept! I like it when people think outside the “box” and push the envelope.
