Another Andy inspired box with a little twist, I wanted to change it up a little so I put the Cocobolo handle off to the right side for something different. I suppose I will have to make sure & give this one to a right handed person, LOL. The 12 X 7 X 3 3/4 box is made from some very nice Mahogany with Spalted Maple keys to match the carved lid. The inside is spray on felt & the finish is Deft Sanding Sealer with several coats of Deft rattle can satin lacquer. Thanks for looking….............................Jack

Very nicely done—from the choice of wood to the design with an offset handle, all very nice!

Great-looking box. The curving on the top flows well and the handle looks nice where it is. How do you like the spray-on felt?

Very nice.
Just thinking about the offset handle. I am right handed and I would prefer the handle on the left so I could use my left hand to open the lid and use my dominant right hand to grab whatever is inside. So I believe this is definately a box for a left handed person. ..........Am I over-thinking this?
Anyway, big thumbs up, well done!

Wow that’s beautiful!

I’ve seen a couple of this style where the wood is wavy like that. Can you tell me how you go about doing this?

Thanks!

Very nice looking box, I especially like the scalloped base. The spalted medallion adds a classy touch.
Thanks for sharing…....
