I made this box for my wife. It was made from a solid chunk of padauk. I put a maple stripe in the lid. I got the plans at a local Woodcraft. It was definitely a fun project. It was also a great learning project. The best part is my wife loves it and uses it everyday.

It is really voluptuous in shape.
I like the wood, like the inlay and like the hinges..really top notch work
Glad she loved it!

That’s a really cool box you made Mark. I bet your wife will be buying you something nice for the shop now waiting to see what other awsome piece of woodwork she receives. And welcome to LJs, hope to see more of you work like this here.

Very nice box. I like the variation of the padauck towards the back.

Great work.
