This is a simple cherry box with a set of walnut dividers. Simple glued miters at the corners, no splines. FYI I did a mock up of the joint before I made the box and even with just glue alone it is very strong (for a box). I wanted to check since the client wanted simple corners. Hinges are the only hardware. There is a simple finger indent to lift the top.
I made a captive top and sawed it off so the grain matches. It is a bookmathced panel, top and bottom. I had a laser engraver do the quote on the top. 4 coats of wet sanded poly (sanding the poly while wet and then wiping off).
