I made this box using many ideas I have seen on LJ. The box itself is 5”x3”x3” made from walnut and maple splines, the inner box is purple heart and the lid is sycamore veneer, and the bottom is lined with somekind of fabric. Thank you Brit box maker for the lid idea and everyone else for the general info you have given me. Comments are welcome, especially constructive critiques

NIce one. I love doing new things just for the learning experience of it.

Great box

Nice job on the miters and splines. Well done. I’m curious, did you use a buffing wheel on it to get that finish?
