Falloff pieces of Walnut Cherry and Maple. Corners are appx 1 1/4 sq. Walnut and shaped with half round cutter on all sides and milled to fit panels. Panels are 7 inches tall made by joining walnut maple and cherry and finished to 9/16. Box dimensions from corner to corner are 16.5×14.25 and finished its 8.75 tall. Its probably the toughest one Ive done so far due to having to fit bottom around the odd cut from the cutter. Its also my favorite. Yet to have a finish applied but will be a Satin Polyurethane.

Nice box!

Noticed you have an air ROS. What brand and how do you like it? I LOVE my Dynabrade.

I like it a lot! It looks “sporty” almost (in a good way). I would love to see photos when it is finished!
