Finally got around to making my first box, as a present for a friend. The woods are birdseye maple, padauk, and ebonized walnut. There are two removable trays, the top one which slides over the bottom one.
Continuous grain all around the box, though the legs hide that for the most part.
Finish is pre-cat lacquer on the main box and trays, and an India ink / Black Transtint Dye mixture top-coated with lacquer for the legs.
Never realized how much work these boxes are, and how finicky the hinges are. Learned lots making it. Now SWMBO and my daughter have already put in orders for their own boxes. Ah, more to do.
