Custom box made from solid bubinga with a walnut and maple inlay. Designed to be used as a keys and loose change box. Bottom is lined with leather to absorb the sound of throwing in heavy objects.

Looks great, lover the way you did the protruding lid and the sides to match

I like how it looks, especially with the inlay it just completes the project nicely. Great work

I love this design and the inlay. I followed your link to your site and watched how you made the inlay. Now I am confused…
Your video showed you cutting up your lid and using bent lamination to make the inlay. This shows on the top and bottom of the lid when finished, but your finished box pictures (on your site) do not have the inlay showing on the bottom of the lid. Did you do something different for that box?

BubingaBill, you caught me and you’re the only one to catch that so far. I made a mistake. What happened was after gluing up the inlayed lid, I planed and sanded too much making the lid too thin to match the level of the sides. So instead of reshaping the sides, I cut a thin piece of veneer and glued it on the bottom of the lid to increase the thickness.

Good eye!

great looking box. I like the inlay work but I also like the overall design of the box with the slanted front and lid overhang.

I like how this box looks so smooth…I have problems at times making my boxes look a little less “box shaped” well done
