I made my fiancé this box out of a cedar log that I resawed into small planks. I just mitered the edges and glued them together. The top and bottom were both made with a lip so that the edges fit together better and added a nice reveal at the bottom of the box and between the box and the lid. The grain and color was so beautiful I wanted to make sure that I used adjacent pieces at the corners so the grain and color could wrap the corners.

Nice box. Photos came out strange. The zoom makes them small! It sounds like you did everything right in making a nice present. The miter joint can be weak which is one reason so many use the miter keys. Good idea to finish the outside, but not the inside.

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and so little time!

Beautiful, it has a simple design but well made box.
