Just made this yesterday and finished it today 2/14/2012. It is made of Maple with a Black Linba handle and purpleheart checks. This is the first time I made a box that the lid opens from ths inside. 81/4” X 51/4” X 31/4”.
The finish is Watco.
Hope everyone had a great day.

Great looking Box! I’m sure the photos do not do the Curly Maple justice. How did you finish this box?
