Hello LJ’s

Last week I finished this small project made out of maple,walnut and some kind of rosewood. I wanted to try something different for the lid. The dimensions are 100×100x100mm and it has a danish-oil finish. The box was sanded up to 220 grid. I think I’ll make another one but than with 2 layers.

Thanks for watching

That’s a nice design. I presume you cut the curves before assembly?

Very cool. I found myself looking at your first photo, picturing the build process from start to finish, figuring out your order of construction.

I’m with rance in assuming you took one long piece of maple, cut the curves on the bandsaw or with a jigsaw, then cut your miters, then glued-it up?

Nice puzzle box, especially with an inner sleeve so that you can actually fill it up if you want to.
