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!

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