My first box is a simple gift box I made using a book I bought. I only see the imperfections, which I conveniently tried to hide in these pictures :)

Nice grain wrap and good color combo : )Was the box a little taller at one time ? Just wondering about the spline placement.
-- I'm absolutely positive that I couldn't be more uncertain!

No the box was never taller. A couple of things I did about those splines I don’t like.
1. I got to aggressive sanding them flush, so if you look the top curves inward >.< 2. I just eyeballed the depth downward from the lid and stopblocked it from there. In retrospect, I probably would have put the larger spline about a 1/16” down on the box. Just enough so one can see the splines looking down at the box from an angle over the lid.
The top and splines are indian laurel, and the sides are red oak. Indian laurel is kinda of weird to work with, but it is heavy, and gives the box a nice weight to it that I like.

Red Oak ? It looks like Ash , but could be my monitor : ) I assumed that it was taller because of the position of the splines so close to the top.

I may not know what the hell I’m talking about either…
