This box holds cards and envelopes, and was made out of basically a random selection of woods. The sides are made from re-sawn 2×4, because that’s what I have, and is inexpensive enough to play with, thelid panel and feet are from poplar scraps, the lid frame comes from a strip of purpleheart that a friend gave me, (thanks, Dan!), and the splines are African blackwood.

The design wasn’t really intended to be Asian, I was just kind of building as I went, and this is what it came out as. On the plus side, my wife will actually allow it to be seen in our house. Winning!
