You have posted some nice boxes and I know you are new here so I had to offer advice: post the woods used, dimensions, and finish and it will be much appreciated.

Great box. I like what gfadvm said. I’m going to have to remember that next time I post a project.

I really like this box and the finish looks great. Did you wet sand it to get the high gloss? Very Nice!

Yea I should have posted the dimensions. I gave almost all the boxes away and don’t remember the ones for this one, but I used Curly Maple and Purple heart. I didn’t wet sand, but went down to 1000 grit and also used steal wool super fine with 5 coats of high gloss poly.
