This will be a birthday present for a good friend – hope to surprise her with it (if she doesn’t look at this web site). Joinery: box joints, mortise and tenon, and miter splines. Wood species: maple, walnut, cherry, and white oak with character – as usual from scraps and found wood.
Tan felt on bottoms.
9 1/4” wide, 10 3/8” wide, 5 1/4” high. White oak lid panel is 3/32” proud.
Natural Danish Oil + WB Poly.

I like the transition in color with the wood grain! Good luck and hope you surprise her!

The color combination is great. Great looking box.

I love the lift out tray and the grain patterns. (everyone knows how I love box joints) yours are perfect.

You have a lot of effort in that one with all the varied joinery showcased. I like it a lot.

Wonderful box! Like the wood colors, joints and the many compartments including the lift out tray. I’m sure she’ll love it.
