This box is made with walnut and maple sides and weeping willow burl inlay strips along the sides and a piece of natural edge on the top. I used box joints to secure the corners. it is finished with multiple coats of rubbing poly and then waxed.

Cool box. Looks really great when it’s opened up with that edge.

Very cool box! It must be pretty hefty.

Beautiful work…...from the design, to woods used, to your joinery.

Hard to believe this hasn’t made the daily top 3. I like it a lot!

I have already “favorited” it. The design is great. The inlayed vertical strips at the corners really set off the unique design.
