Made this box for a christmas gift. I had a great piece of figured walnut that I re-sawed for the top, the sides are maple with walnut splines, walnut trim piece on the bottom and a solid walnut panel for the bottom of the box. I used SOSS Barrel hinges they make for a nice clean look I think. I finished it with tung oil and poly then used a nice coating of paste wax.

The walnut figure is gorgeous and the contrast with the maple is really nice. Good job!
