Great looking box! You’ve chosen my 2 favorites—curly maple and koa. I love the way light works on both of those woods—koa shimmers with wild patterns and curly maple gives that 3-D feeling. Nice job!

Very fine looking box,Steve. The curly maple is always an eye catcher and that tops just sets it off!!!!!!! Where did you find the Koa? It is growing in Texas now too??...........Jim

The woods are beautiful …the hardware , not so much.
Was the latch necessary to keep the lid down ?
Keep up the good work : )

Ooooh that top looks gorgeous!
Really amazing box overall, great job.

Today I moved and re-organized three chunks of koa I have stashed under my bench….I am not worthy of using it yet, nor has a project of that wood’s caliber arisen

what a beauty! love the wood selections and contrast! the only detractor from the box is the visible hinge. this is only my personal preferance and style but I think that the bright hinge takes you eyes off the warm soft patterns and feel of the wood. You go through the time to pick you wood so let it shine! Resesing the hinge can be and extra step but the ends justify the means. Also what inside? I’m looking foward to more of your work
