A very crisp and clean look. The lines work nicely, and the curved lid surfaces make you want to touch it. A nice one.

A very nice little box. I have never used Hickory. Is that the wood that resembles oak. I was given a short piece of African cherry, but haven’t tried it yet. Is that the front or side wood?

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and so little time!

John,

Lots of different things going on here, but it is fun. I like that your inserted strips meet at the corners, not easy to do. I especially liked your carved leaf box from a few projects ago. That was magnificent. I looked back on your body of work. It is impressive and shows lots of imagination. Note: If you bandsaw apart, insert strips, resaw, and 45 the corners you can make an undulating stripe that goes all around the box and matches at all four corners.

Very fancy! I thought the stripes were inlays at first but it looks like you cut with a band saw, added strips and glued?
