Made this box with left over pieces of bird’s eye maple, walnut, mahogany and ebony. Finished it with a few coats of danish oil and some hand rubbing. Used blood wood to show off some spline work -:)
Hope you folks like it.

Hi Steve,
Just added a couple of more pictures for you. The hinge is simply a tiny nail embedded on each side and cut off. It works fine.

Great job with some very fancy wood (especially that birdseye!)

I think that this box is very clean looking and I love the beautiful wood and contrast between them. Well done and congratulations.
