This is just a simple box made from offcuts. The body is QSWO from a previous project. The lid and splines are walnut. I picked up several old award plaques at work that were going to be thrown out and have used a lot of the walnut for splines, small lids and handles. Lots of places to pick up wood for free.

Finish is BLO, shellac, lacquer.

Very nice box, sir. It’s clean, simple with interesting figure.
