As I was browsing at my favorite lumber supplier shop, I came across some nice figured Maple. I just could not let anybody else walk away with it. So I purchased it and brought it home. After few months of looking at it and 10 hrs of my labor, I made this box that is very much inspired by my two Lumber jock Idols (Andy and Black cherry).
Let me know what you think.

Very nicely done! I can relate to not wanting to pass on nicely figured maple.
