This box is similar to one I posted earlier and is made from Silky Oak for the main panels, Rosewood for the legs/handles and the lid insert is Walnut burr. The grain in the Silky Oak reflects the light beautifully and is a pleasure to work.
The walnut veneer is mounted on 6mm ply and is recessed into the domino jointed lid.
All the joints are all done with 5mm dominos and the box is lined with a purple pigskin suede.
I changed the layout of the dividers in the top of the box to allow a watch or pendant to fit in the long pocket at the front.
I like how functional this style of box is with a wide opening lid and the drawer below.
