A few boxes I made late last year. The woods are Maple, Brazilian Cherry, Figured Maple with Wenge and Brazilian Cherry with Wenge. The first two boxes were made by edge gluing the Brazilian Cherry and Maple and then cutting to size.

Nicely done. Good wood combinations and execution. I like the way you did the top on the Brazilian cherry and Wenge box.

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and now time to work!!!

These are nice boxes and you did a good job on them.
