When I started woodworking I decided to number my attempts. This is number 21, lead made with Curupay (end grain) and Cancharana. When I looked for woods here in Argentina, I was very interested in colours for work whith different combinations. I knew very little about wood and took me some month to find a red one. When I found Cancharana I was very happy! The other wood in this box is eucaliptus grandis

I have never seen the tumbling block pattern used like this before. It is quite efective

Nice project. I like quilt box patterns. There are so many designs that you can do with them. Nice contrasting woods for this project.

Welcome to Lumber Jocks. Nicely made box. Cancharana is a beautiful wood to work. I had good luck with this design. It features a pivot and magnets. Notice the splines on the corners. Keep boxing and keep posting.

Beautiful box, an eye catcher. The top is attractive with those colors and pattern. Great job!
