This beauty is made from Birdseye maple that has a bit of quilting in it. It’s are to really capture it in the photos. The lid is cherry with a raised medallion of the same birdseye that the box is made from. It’s finished up with cherry miter keys and a raw cedar lining on the interior of the box.

Thanks for taking a look.

Beautiful box Joey.

Birds eye maple is really expensive in my neighborhood but it sure shines.

Bill, nice work. I like your new sculpting techniques.

Two suggestions:

Try this chain=. I think you’ll like it better. Available from Lowe’s. 15 feet for $10.

Bend cap hooks 90 degrees. Turn to follow chain angle. Better look, less invasive in box space.

It’s expensive in these parts also, but man it makes a pretty box.

@Big Al,

I didn’t use a chain on this box, or any of mine for that matter. I use the cedar tray to stop the lid from folding all the way back.

Looks great and the wood is beautiful too. I like the hingeless lid idea, pretty cool.
