Sorry about the picture quality. I found some thin brass strips at Hobby Lobby and inlaid some into the top of the box… I hope it’s clear enough. I went for an oriental look again. I like the contrast of Canarywood and Purpleheart. The feet look lighter as I havent put any finish on them yet.

You’ve done it again, great box & I agree the contrast by using the purple heart really pops

I’m new to joinery.. Can you tell me what those little disk like or slots on each verticle corner are? Is it a biscuit that’s cut in using diff type of wood and also to hold it together? What’s the technique called?

The box looks great. I have some Canary wood as well that I haven’t done much with other than a book matched glue up… my thoughts are to build a guitar with it but I have a lot of technique and skill to work on before I can tackle all of it.

Thanks for sharing.

Stanley, no dividers – yet. I usually let the customer decide what they want inside…. dividers, sliding box or nothing at all. Thank you for looking and the compliment!
