This is my first box. I made a jig to cut some box joints and had some leftover mahogany from my shoe bench so I thought I would give it a shot… The three dots on the top are maple. The finish is BLO. This was a fun little project and I look forward to making some more!

Thanks for the nice comments, I am a little disappointed with the hole for the pull. it was originally going to be a stopped hole and the moment I started drilling I realized the bit left a small pilot hole, crap!
