A simple little project to hold kitchen utensils. It is 8”X8”X8”. Walnut with cherry splines and an oak leaf cut out. I know, I know, oak leaf on walnut but I guess it is a nifty way of representing three woods but only use two :)

Very nice John, and I like your way of thinking about the three woods! Is that a lid tucked in there?

Thanks Lenny! No, it is not a lid. There is a small slot 3/16” so you could put a couple knives in the slot. Not sure that was the best way to do it but it was quick and it worked. On the next one I may try a shallow dado to hold the inner wall.

Nice little box John.
Looks like some careful sanding in those inside curves.

Yes, very nifty. The oak leaf really dresses it up quite a bit.

That looks great and I thought that was a lid also. I like the idea for the knives.

Beautiful and well crafted box. The splines and the cut out are great accents. Like the knife slot. Great work!
