I made this box for my wife as a last minute Christmas present. I got the plans out of Wood magazine. The body of the box is curly maple. The side and top strip are wenge. I made the drawer out of curly maple for the front, back and dividers, and I used cocobolo for the sides and bottom. I finished it with shellac and wax. This was definitely a fun project, and she loves it.

I have to say this is the most unusual design, but it sure looks good! :)

I have this magazine sitting in my shop. Wanted to do it for my son’s girlfriend but didn’t have time. Her Birthday is in Feb. so maybe I can get it done by then.

Looks great. I like the two tone drawer.

I missed this plan in the magazine, would have saved it if I’d seen it. Very neat contemporary look, well executed work.
Well done,
