Gotta love the Maple leaf. Did you get that one from google images? It looks exactly like one I have used that I found there… a great source for images.I like the box. Nice and clean and simple, it lets the leaf be the focus of attention.

Thanks for sharing the technique about making the lid pop out and still keeping same grain pattern. Nice job on the lid.

I love the way you re-sawed the Oak and then matched up the leaf an lid to make it look almost translucent!

I love this technique and how the grain carries through the leaf. Favorited! And to think I almost passed this by from the title.

I love how you keep the grain of the wood going with the leaf. Well done

I’m with Rance, ingenious technique.First I thought it was routed but it’s way easier and much less messy.I don’t really care for boxes but I do like yours with its simple and natural elegance. Thanks for posting.
