This box is made with curly ambrosia maple and cherry burl. The pull was made by a friend of mine, but I can’t for the life of me remember what its called. Sadly I can’t blame it on getting old, I have always had that problem.

I use a “holey galahad” grinding disk to shape the lid

Box size is 4×4x5ish

Very nicely done.
What kind of finish did you use?
Is the pull attached with epoxy?

Another awesome piece. The only thing I would change is to make the pull point straight up.
