Another box from maple and mystery wood.
Like the last box I posted, I installed the inlay banding in one continuous piece on a 24” board, then cut the box sides and assembled them. This is much easier than trying to cut inlay to the exact size for the four box sides after assembly.
The knife is a Gerber locking blade my grandfather gave me at least 30 years ago. I used to carry it on my belt in my first job after college when I worked in a lumberyard, so it has sentimental value in a couple of different ways.
