This is my first attempt at a box like this. It’s also my first time using exotic wood like this. The main box is brazilian cedar with maple feet and zebrawood corners. The tray is bloodwood and maple, and the lid is maple with a zebrawood knob. I started with very little pieces of each, that’s why there’s so many species. It turned out a little better than I though I could do, but there is still some practicing to do before I can make a perfect box.

Well, it looks like you did more than attempt it, Jonathan, you actually made it. I think that it turned out nicely. Good work and congratulations.
