Made out of cherry and holly. Measures 7 1/2×4 1/2×4 and is finished with danish oil and wax. This is the first time I’ve ever tried doing an inlay like this and I got it right!! LOL….all the lines met up! Thanks for the looks and comments.

That’s really nice. I haven’t done inlays yet, I’m sure it’s coming.

You have outdone yourself! The whole design is great. But those hinges make it!!

Cool design on the hinges and handle. Beautiful grain on that cherry.

JKP, it looks like you have done everything right on this build. The proportions are not bad, the hinges are a good idea, and the inlays are skillfully done, match, and add interest. The lift is a nice thematic match with the hinges. The finish that you have applied looks smooth and does a nice job of accenting the cherry’s grain. So how come you didn’t put a finish on the inside? I don’t get it. Looks like you are ready to try inlays that do more than bisect the spaces. Nice job on this. Keep boxing and keep posting.

I agree with everything that has already been stated.
A beautiful box. I think the design is exceptional, the inlays are nice and minimal and the triangular lift and hinge features outstanding.
Unique

make for a distinctive and unique work to be proud of
