I just finished this box for my oldest daughter for Christmas. It is made from 115 yr old Walnut that my Great Grandfather had cut down on his farm years ago. Also used in this project was oak. The last picture is a jig I built and posted recently that was used to cut the splines. Hope you all like it and Merry Christmas to you all.

I like the style, the top, and the corner splines. Wood with a story always pleases me. This was a fun post to read. Great design and nice craftsmanship. I can’t tell…did you match the grain on three corners?

You might consider a jig like this. It is versatile and easy to use. Keep boxing and keep posting.

Looks great! I also like the story. I was able to use left over Cedar my wife’s grandfather milled and make a lantern for her.

Nice box. Looks like you mitred hinges also. Good job.
