Another of my favourite design. This one is made from rippled sucamore and bloodwood, with a blackwood handle. Joints are hald blind dovetails made using the Incra jig. Dimensions are 9” x 6” x 3 1/4”.
Lining is a brown suedette fabric glued to the box bottom before assembly.

This one is my favorite (of the day, of course). You chose an excellent trio of woods and the design is beautiful.

Thanks for the post.

Very nice box. A great job. The colors and wood grain are outstanding.
