That is beautiful. The woods work together wonderfully. I really like the way it has distinctive features without appearing overly ornate.

What is the finish?

There is a lot to look at in this box. I like the round over on the top edge of the lid. It shows the figure of the Maple very well. The detail on the panel and where the top and bottom meet catch the eye. The color difference in the Maples is nice too. I have been thinking of a new way to secure dividers in the bottom of my jewelry boxes. Your way looks simpler than cutting dados. Thanks for letting us see your work.

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