Made with Walnut and Maple, the walnut board I used had a beautiful blonde streak so I tried to make the whole box with wrap around grain and streak, it turned out pretty good. I also got to try out my new Incra Ibox and made my first box joints. The box is finished with tungoil and I lined the inside bodtom with stick on felt. the lock and hinges are from lowes/ I used pyrography to apply the sapper school logo on the top of the box.

Very nicely done. I like the mix of maple and walnut.

The Sgt Major will appreciate the gift, especially because you made it.
