Very very nice! Whats the dimensions? How did you cut the coves for the chips?

Very nice. How did you sand the chip coves? Seems like that would be a pain by hand. I like the chamfer on the top maple piece.

Jimboe,
Eye-catching, and with elegant simplicity, beautiful lines and tasteful artistry. I’ve never made anything quite at this level, but if I had, I don’t think I could sell it. It would feel too much like giving away one of my children. Inspiring work, thanks for posting.

Thank you for sharing the photos; it’s a well done box. It is hard to see from the photos how the top panel is attached to the sides. Is it floating? If yes, how are the grooves cut? Thanks, h.
