This box is a Christmas present for my wife. The top of this box is solid air dried black walnut, the sides are veneer. The top has a beautiful grain pattern. The box is approximately 9” wide, 6” deep and 5 1/4” in height. The finish is shellac and wax.
Merry Christmas to everyone

Beautiful wood. The perfect natural ripple on the top is perfect and nicely finished

The corner tapering is a treat, when viewed isometrically (as in the project post picture) it continually challenges my idea of what is vertical, sides or frame.

A splendid box, Roger.
