Nice box.
Jatoba is a very hard wood isn’t it.
How did you cut the pieces of box-lid with angled edge glue up?
What finish you going to apply?

Looks like a treasure chest that I’m sure she will cherish. Thank you for sharing Dave.

Little treasure chests are cool. Especially with the rounded top. Nice work!

Your box looks great. I’m making receipt boxes for Christmas and one of the ten I’m making looks just like that. Yours can also be used in later years for 3X5 cards to hold receipts as well. My boxes are being made from extra, pine, 2×4’s and not the fancy wancy wood. Nice project. Great creativity
