A colleague asked me to make a box for her husband. Her only requirement was that the inside be large enough for his wallet and keys.

The base is walnut; the body is southern yellow pine with walnut accents; the lid is poplar and the knob on top is walnut and poplar.

That is a very good looking box. I really like the wood combinations that you used.
