I was in box building mode last Christmas. This one was made for my son-in-law.
The wood on the base of the box was given to me by a friend in South Texas. I don’t know what it is.
The top is figured maple, with ebony and bubinga accents. The plugs are bubinga.

Thanks for looking.

Beautiful little box Kent, I really like the lid design…............. I may “borrow” part of it if you don’t mind….
Very nice details!

Nice box… Really nice!

A shot of it opened up would be nice… hinges used, etc.

Looks great!

Thank you.

Gene, “borrow” all you want! I stole the basic idea from Andy’s palm boxes and made them bigger.

Joe, I didn’t take a picture of this one opened, but here is a link to a similar box that has a picture of it opened. The hinge is 1/8” brass rod drilled through each side into the top. The top pivots on those.

Hiya Kent,

Of course, another stellar job on the box-building…..Bet the s-i-l will really use it to full benefits. That’s something I’ve never tried to build… a box. Guess I never had the desire, but more than likely, the know-how…lol. Beautiful job and beautiful wood….I need to “raid your wood pile” next time I see you….. Rick.

Hey Kent, I like this larger version of yours, nice contrasting woods and the plugs are a perfect accent.
Thanks for posting this,
Andy
