I had a request for a basic and simple flat surface box. Definitely not one of my favorite box designs cause it ain’t sculpted…. but this was one that was already put together and waiting its turn at my sculpting table. Instead, it was spared the grinder and ended up on the router table to get rounded corners and about 15 minutes of sanding.
12×8x4 3/4 with a lacquer finish.

nice box; but the customer is always right, even if it goes against our woodworking grain.

Beauty in simplicity. And nice wood. Is that Black Oak, or did the lacquer darken the wood?

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and now time to work!!!

The fit and finish make this one a stand out for a “plain box”. That oak has some really nice color and you made good use of it.
