While this is not my first box, there is a “first’” in this box for me. I always wanted to try a little banding so I gave it a shot on this box. I made the banding myself from some small pieces of scrap maple, sycamore and bubinga. Cut it to size and laid it in. The box body is cherry with a birdseye maple top and bubinga splines. The bottom is glued up sycamore scraps. Interior parts are cherry and maple/sycamore. Finished with a BLO/wiping varnish mix. I gave this to my wife to use as a box to hold all her different tea’s. Thanks for looking.
