Jotaba Stash Box. Another Asian style tapered-side box with a lift-off lid and interior tray. This box is made of Jatoba (South America) with oak splines, legs and interior tray. The legs give it a lighter feel. The box is about 6×6 inches and is finished with hand rubbed satin poly. One departure from my usual M.O….I opted for an oil-rubbed bronze knob on the lid.

I like the box. The choice of wood looks great, but what I like the most is the shape of the top, and the pull.
Thanks for sharing it.

Very nice design and craftsmanship. I never worked with Jatoba before. I reminds me alot of Padauk.

Great job, great design, great woods, great craftsmanship. I like the tray and especially the tray’s handle. The feet are a nice touch and do add a light touch. Keep boxing. Thanks for sharing.

Some very thoughtful details on this one. The square lid lift repeat beneath the knob seems like the perfect transition. The light splines above the legs bring the legs right into the body of the box. And, the little tray lift is something I’ve not even seen before… And I really like. I think this is my favorite of all your fine stats boxes.

Beautiful job. I, like others, really like the tray handle.

Also, the foremost leg looks like it has a small “heart” inlay in it. Is that right or is it a blemish in the wood? Which-ever the case….it looks great.

Jaykapur….the “heart inlay” you mentioned is actually a dowel made from the Jatoba and used to strengthen the leg to box connection…..and be a bit decorative.
Thanks to everyone for the kind comments.
