I made this box for the 2002 Best junior showmanship trophy for the cardigan welsh corgi nationals. The woods are walnut for the box and body of the corgi, birdseye maple for the background and thin strip inlay and maple for the rest of the corgi. The inside of the box lid and bottom are covered with walnut veneer. The pattern and technique i used were from a woodsmith magazine. The coved sides were created using the table saw. The finish is wipe on poly.

Very nice box, your construction is excellent, beautiful wood. I am always impressed when woodworkers work from plans and create a project, getting all the pieces to be just right really requires some skill in craftsmanship, thanks for sharing
