This is my new box I call the bear box because in the grain of the wood on the top there is a bear head and body was not able to bring it out with the picture sorry.
It is 10×71/2×5 1/2 made with walnut, oak and cherry wood with purpleheart holding the side.
Thanks Dennis

Very nice box and a great piece of wood on the top (I see the bear head). At what point in the build did you do the diagonals? I didn’t realize they were full thickness until I saw the rest of the pics.

The bear is there. I too have trouble getting grain to show in a photo. In fact, I have some time set aside tomorrow to work on that (got a nice Southern facing window).

The sort of lazy S shaped line on the front- can I ask how you did that?

Very nice, love the way the top has that curve to it.

great looking box. I like the top, wood is great but I also like the way you shaped the lid.
