This box started as just a basic chechen box. For the lid I started with a really pretty piece of curly maple which I picture framed with chechen. I then laminated a piece of oak to the curly maple for added thickness and stability. The lid was then banded with birdseye maple. I debated many different styles for the corners, but finally decided that I really liked the clean lines, so I just softened the edges. In keeping with the clean lines, I decided not to use a lift or handle. Instead a small pressure on the back corner lifts the lid. The interior is lined with cedar.
Thanks for taking a look.
