The grain looks like looking down a staircase! I love it!

Very nicely done. I really like the way the mitered lid seems to rise at the center. I had to look at the side profile to realize that it was a flat top.

Oh, I would have guessed a pyramid top too! Great trick of the eye with the way you used that grain. I rather like the wood hinge too. A nice box for treasures :-)
