Roger, I like your design here. The support is a special touch. Making stuff for grandchildren is a joy. That is an amazing grain in the table it is sitting on.

FYI you can edit your post at any time should you want to. I would love to see more pictures of how you get into the box for the coins, and I have some questions.

What stain and finish did you use?

Are the splines walnut?

How are the supports attached to the box?

Did you see this box by Daiku? It uses some similar concepts. Link Keep boxing and keep posting.

Another gem Roger. Love the crisp miters and the walnut splines. What did you finish it with? Hey Roger, did you build that tiger maple table the box is on?

Have your say...
