I have never kept any of this style boxes for myself so I’m building one from each wood where I milled the logs. This is from Texas hill country mesquite which has a pinkish color. Dimensions: 12×8x4 1/2”. No glue (pinned) box joints. Shipwright hinges with live edge. Deft lacquer finish. I ‘created’ the live edge on the front of the lid as this slab was too wide for the top. This was a first for me but I liked the effect.
