Wenge and Oak Box

A good friend gave me a very small piece of Wenge last Christmas, barely enough to do a small box. So, I decided to add a little oak to the mix, and this is the result. The lid is hinged with hidden pins and the corners are a hybrid half lap/butt joint with dowels. Approx. 6.5×4 inches. The bottom is lined with black velvet and it is finished with spray poly.

Very nice box. The wenge and the oak make a nice contrasting wood combination.

Very nice! Good design and execution. Did you bandsaw the end curves after construction?

Nice piece! The two coarse-textured woods work well together, and the pegged joint is a nice effect.

This is eye catching, nice contrasts.
I like the front panel with the pegs and the matching inset top panel.
