I would say you accomplished your goal. Great wood and a nice, simple design. The grain in the top is very nice. It could have lined up better with the sides of the box, but overall this is well done.

very nice, I think it lined up welll…. Robert, that might be an otpical illusion caused by the rabbet/dado recess cut around the top. Beautiful wood, including the tray. What was the finish?

Simple can be beautiful as well. If you study George Nakashima, he believed our job as woodworkers was to display the wood in such a way to let it speak for itself. You did a very nice job of that.

Love for idea of letting the beauty of the wood do the talking…

Yes, there is a prominant rabbit around the edge of the top. The angle of the shot makes the design in the top look shifted, but it is not. The inside of the top shows better, I think. Thanks Guys…...................;-J

Nice box ! I am surprised at how light in color your claro is. I’m thinking that the claro from California area is like this, compared to that from further north (into Oregon) ? Very nice regardless.

Sorry Millo. The finish is wipe-on plus a couple of coats of spray can lacquer…...............;-J
