Aj, I like this project. The hardware is first class as is the work. Nature did make a beautiful piece of wood, but you managed to put it at its best advantage. I like the surprise of seeing the most beautiful part of the top on the inside of the lid.
Usually I put the sap or light wood at the bottom of my boxes, but I see the top and the side colors blend well with your version, and there is that surprise factor.

This is a wonderful starting post and great work. Thanks for sharing. Keep boxing and keep posting.

I love the way you left the joints proud, that takes courage. The hardware installation is perfect. That is really hard to do.
