Catalpa body, Lacewood lid, with Walnut Crotch handles.

2.5” x 5” x 9” Finished with Satin Wipe-on Poly with faux suede lining.

Had some Catalpa left over from a recipe box and slapped together the box thinking I would put a lift lid on it, nothing too exciting. I was revisiting some of my LumberJocks favorites and saw Andy's wing box and thought this might be a better way to go. His tutorial explains the process much better than I can. Thanks Andy.

One problem with adapting an existing box is that I had to make the dados for the divider by hand using a chisel. Much better to do this before the box is assembled.

I love it, the design is simple yet quite uncommon and very pleasing. Good job!
