This is a walnut box with lots of tapers: I think it’s a 10 degree taper bottom to top. The 1/4” splines are cherry. The top is pecan from several logs I salvaged from my daughter’s home in Norfolk when Hurricane Isabel ran over her yard.
While I tend to think the design is a bit clunky, my idea for this box was to make it with the tapered and mitered sides; something I had never attempted before. And make the catch fir into the sides, and the hinges hidden. Actually, there are no hinges – I set short rods through the sides and top (see last photo). In all those ways it works.
