I made this project while in the middle of a much larger project waiting for glue and finish to dry!!
I just started grabbing small scraps laying around and my only inspiration was a lid design I had seen on here previously.

I didnt copy it completely I added a few different details.

I will add burgundy flocking to the interior once the finish has dried..

Woods are

Sipo (sometimes called Utile)
Zebrano
Wenge
bottom is hickory and the corners are splined miter joints and the splines are made out of hard maple

Your wood combination goes very well with each other. Good looking box.

Nice design. The grain on the handle really plays with your eye and fools you into thinking it isn’t straight. I like it.

Very creative and nice use of contrasting woods. Well done.
