Second of two Boxes I thought I would share. Materials are Maple and cherry, with a sliding dovetail lid. Maloof finish in a can, Tung/BLO/Poly wipe on finish.

Very smiple construction, maple strips with cherry end panels, and a combination maple & cherry top which slides into dovetails routered into the long side panels.

I love that little box. I am in the process of making a few right now. Your design is a new one for me. I hope you don’t mind if I borrow your idea and add a few of my ideas as well.
