Was time to clean out the off-cut bin and this is the result. The box lid is a half lapped Bubinga frame with a section of Curly Maple set in dado’s. The lifter is Walnut. The box sides are mahogany with Oak corners. The hinges are Cherry set on Wenge blocks. Thats 7 different species ;-)
Its about 17” long, 6-1/2” wide and 5” deep. The pictures were taken after the initial coat of Danish oil. Once dry it will be sanded to 400 grit (220 now) and get a few layers of Poly.
My first time making wood hinges and really enjoyed the experience.
Thank you for looking.
