l just finished making this box for my cousin’s wife ,it was made of black walnut with spanish cedar surrounding the inside of the box with a removable divider and tray on top. The surrounding cedar and removable divider are unfinished so it will leave a mild scent of cedar, the tray on top is made of spanish cedar and cherry finished with two coats of wipe on poly and so is the box. To finish it off l used the Beesall 3 part buffing system. It measures 4 3/4”h x 12” L x 7” w the inside is 3 3/4” deep and 10 1/4” L x 5 3/8”w the first level of the box with removable divider is 1” deep and the tray is 1 1/2 ” deep. Possible uses of the what ever box is Jewellery , Tea, Men’s Valet Box and what ever you want to use it for. Thanks for looking!

Great looking box! I, too, like the finger joints, and I like the idea of having the tray out of unfinished cedar for an aromatic scent.

Very nice box, the Spanish cedar and Black Walnut look great and compliment each other. The interior and tray are nicely finished as is the whole box….well done.

Clean and stylish. The finish brings out the natural warmth of the walnut

Whatever it is, it looks great. I really need to figure out box joints.
