So this is my first attempt at a box. It is made of walnut and maple. The corners are mitered and reinforced with miter splines in contrasting wood (maple). The walnut frame on the top is really an “on-lay” and not an in-lay.
The box is finished with BLO and a couple of coats of wax.
The inside tray is all maple. I resawed some maple into 1/8” thick panels to make the bottom of the tray.
The tray and the bottom of the main box are lined in red felt.
Overall dimensions are about 10” x 11” x 5” (roughly – I guess I should actually measure it)
While there are a few very minor flaws, I am very pleased with how it turned out. I could have fixed the few flaws but they are so minor I was concerned I’d do more harm than good trying to fix them.
