I made this box for my wife from an article I found in a june 98 copy of Wood Magazine. It is walnut with maple and an unknown wood I inherited somewhere along the way in the inlay and the rest of the box is walnut. The trick was to make a jig to cut the diamond pieces exactly the same size. The rest was straight forward woodworking. Finish is danish oil and wax.
