Hey Jocks, here the latest box out of the shop which incorporate some old and new design elements. The base has been modified in sizes from a past project and the top has been beveled and a shop made lift handle. Material used are Mahogany and Curly Maple with a Danish oil and French polish top off with Myland wax. I have a larger one that is just about ready as well, hope you like….Blkcherry

not to mean anything negative about your past boxes, but this one is by far the best in terms of design and balance Wilson. beautifully made!

Wilson you nailed it! I saw the same on the splines how did you pull that off? Love the colors and shape. Great job. Blondie and I just returned from the lumber yard for the outdoor table. She changed her mind from Jatoba to Black Walnut. I said yes dear, LOL I prefer BW though.
Talk to you soon.

Wilson, you are going crazy with the shaped-sided boxes… Love it! The graduated spline lengths accentuate the shaped sides, and the wood combo is excellent. Good job on the interior, too. Way to go!

Nice build. I like the inner compartment. I think you have used prettier wood in other boxes. But maybe I don’t see enough mahogany to appreciate it. The splines look great with the curved sides.

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and now time to work!!!

BC, nice looking box, I like the shape a lot. I am assuming you did not use a flat top toothed rip blade for the splines, but I cannot see well enough on my computer, did you get the splines to match the “v” profile? Very nice.
