I couldn’t be there for the suprise party so I sent him a suprise. Its a simple box. Walnut sides, birdseye maple for the top and bottom panel. Mitered corners. and the panels set in grooves. I’m still doing something wrong cutting miters on the table saw. I made a little shooting board and cleaned up the miters with a block plane. they are pretty tight now. The finsih is oil and wax. I bought two stogies one for him and one for me. Thanks for looking.

I like it man and a nice gift inside. What kind of block plane do you use?

Brandon, I used a LN low angle. I think I have to build a specific sled for miters. My set up is not consistent for some reason.
Berta, I never tried the Black Label. Thank you for your support.
