This box was made to be presented as a going away gift from some individuals to there leader as he moved on to a new duty station. I used Black Walnut and Hard maple to make the box, all 3/4 thick. The box was inlaid with walnut on the top and maple on the sides just as a fun add on. I used butt joints to join the box, the brass screws in the front and back are decorative and meant to compliment the rest of the brass fittings. The design on top is The United States Army Sapper Leader Course logo and was burned in with a weller woodburner. (thank goodness I recently upgraded that lol) Finish was 3 coats of low gloss tong oil. Thanks for Looking.
