Box is sassafras and the top is spalted sugar maple. The lid lift is actually a cut-off of the lid itself and just sanded/shaped to fit/flow. Sorta worked! LOL Box measures 7 1/2”L x 4”W x 3”H. Finished with Howards wax and buffed. Thanks for the looks and comments.

Nice box. That Spalted Sugar Maple sure is pretty! As for the Sassafras – how can you go wrong with a wood that smells that good. Well done.

Beautiful wood and beautiful work. Can’t tell from the pics – how did you do the corner joints?

just when I thought I was getting a little burned out on boxes, I see one that inspires me to make another. Good work!
