This box is maple crotch wood with an ambrosia maple top. I buy most of my lumber from a local lumberyard, and they have had a recent run of maple. It takes a bit of digging, but I have been able to find some beautifully unusual maple lately in the stacks.
If you are anywhere near NE Indiana, try Wibles Lumber. They have some really good stuff.
The box is 4 tall and 5×9. The lid is shaped with a medium grit curved top Holy Galahad grinding disk on a 4 1/2 inch angle grinder.
