This is a box that I made for my niece. The base, handle, and dividers are walnut, the top and bottom are ambrosia maple, and the sides are African mahagony.

I agree with Jim. Nice design. Good wood choices and construction. I just cut some old Mahogany for a box. I hope it looks as good. I hadn’t considered pairing with a darker wood.

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

Great looking box with a nice blending of the three woods.
