All,

This is a curved-lid box made from padauk. Ends are milk-painted poplar. Finish was several coats of gloss lacquer.

This was based on plans from Woodsmith. You can get a free copy here:

Thanks,

Tim

Very nice box and thank you for the plan link. You chose a very nice wood to accent with the painted ends.

That is a very nice box. I like the contrast between the finished wood and the painted ends.

Simple yet elegant. Might have to make one as I have some Blue Oak with some great grain that would look great.

Thanks for the nice comments. I appreciate the feedback.

For those building it or considering it, the only tricky part was the angled cut on the end pieces that blends in to the cove. You really have to sneak up on it as if you cut too wide, you leave a step that is very obvious and tough to sand / scrape / plane out as you run right into the the cove. If cut too narrow, you end up with a step the other way (DAMHIK).
