This is a simple recipe box I built for my wife. The design and construction are in no way unique. It’s about the size of a lady’s shoe box. What makes it special is the wood. It is made of curly maple trimmed in jatoba, with a maple burl veneered top.

Very lovely box, Wayne. The wood makes all the difference, doesn’t it?
