This box belongs to the group of opening top boxes. This mechanism is also expained in the blog

In these boxes, I find that working with in inlays is particularly interesting, because user can see both sides of the lid. That advantage, of course, implies more attention in back lid finishing.

woods are cancharana (sides), nogal (walnut in sliding dovetail), cedro y okume

Thanks for looking

Very nice work on these boxes. I really like how you did the swivel side box in the blog. Will definitely try it. Thanks.

I like the sliding latch mechanism. It’s always cool to see how simple machines can be made from wood.
