That’s a really nice looking box you have there. The two-color contrast is excellent. I want to try this someday.

I like it, simple and yet it leaves you with a “How did they do that” in your mind.

This will be next on my list for my next set of boxes. I wish i didn’t have so much sanding on the ones I have in progress at the moment. Nice job. It’s one of those why didn’t I think about that. I use a lot of contrasting woods in my projects. Thanks for sharing.

Very nice box…the contours really make it unique! The contrasting wood doesn’t hurt either.

Wow Rick, nice work. I really had to study this to think about how in the world did he do that?

I like the twist on the theme. It has merit. And I really like how you did the divider in the bottom.
