Just started doing woodworking with some small box projects, I am using a book from Doug Stowe and one from Jim Stack as a reference. This box is from the Doug Stowe book, I just made it a little big bigger than the measurements from the book. The box is white oak with walnut for the miter keys and the lid is spalted maple. The finish is Tried and True Danish Oil.

Good job on the box. I had done a few boxes and things like boxes before I got Doug Stowe’s book. I learned a lot from it. It looks like you have also. Welcome.

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and now time to work!!!
