A box made from jatoba and aspen .
I like the colour combination which created a nice fresh look .
The design is a play of corner splines with a vertical spline added and spacing of the splines .
The top lines are a continuation of the vertical splines and the lid corners are a inlay made from birch bark .
The lid lift is very subtle but works well and the tray is easily removed as the lid opens wide with the barrel /SOSS hinges I used for the first time .
The tray and bottom are lined with a upholstery material .
The tray dividers are simple bent pieces of aspen with a lace wood lift handle .
The box is finished with satin spray lacquer and will get a wax coat when the lacquer has cured .
Hope you like it .

Very nice. You are refining and refining what seems to be becoming a signature style. .......... and a beautiful signature it is!
I like the purity that the aspen brings to this piece. I never thought of it as being that white.

Excellent craftsman ship as always! Striking beautiful contrast and love the high style separator.
As Shipwright said, it’s your signature style! Nice work Kiefer!

Definitely like this one and your continuous, wrap around design—very attractive and meticulously crafted with great use of contrasting woods. A nice evolution of your vertical end inlays.

Kiefer…..I don’t know how to classify the style…..Asian Modern? Very classy, clean lines. I think you are on to something great.

Paul and Greg say what I’m thinking about the excellent crafting of your boxes. This one reminds me of rice paper doors.
