Walnut Cherry and Maple (Not Inlayed) Box is 16.5×14.25×8.5. Its 5/8 thick and lid is 9/16. Half round cutter was used to create the legs and edges. Legs dado with mill. The bottom was a bit tricky to get to fit around the routed edge so I used a drill press to cut out round holes and then fit a 1/2 strip around the inside to lay bottom on.

Nice workmanship and combination of woods. Can you post another picture of the box off of the bucket and standing on it’s own?

Both of the boxes you posted today are very nice.

You lost me with the method of attachment for the bottom of this one!

Are tops lift off/hinged?

The top will be lift off… The bottom had to be cut around the shaped edge on the inside so I used a 2 inch wide piece of oak and drilled the corner out to fit then took a 1/2 inch piece and glued to it on bottom and dado for the plywood bottom
