That’s gorgeous – Maple and Walnut is a classic combo like love and marriage!, horse and carriage!, etc.

Excellent wood choice. I like the overall dimensions. The lid is ingenious and I plan to steal the idea immediately;)

I have been holding on to a piece of rosewood waiting for the right inspiration to use it and I think I just found it. This is a wonderful box. Thanks for sharing it with us. I believe we will be seeing many of these in the future. One of them just might be from me.
