A simple box built mainly from canary wood with maple trim and the top inlay is a redwood burl veneer. The bottom and lid has a felt lining.

Very nice wood choices and the box build is well done. Did you try the burl by it’s self without the wood in between? I was just wondering what the image would look like.
-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and now time to work!!!

The burl veneer is 2 pieces with damaged edges so I used the wood trim to conceal the damage. If I trimmed the damage they won’t fill the space:(

I notice you like those style of hinges. I’ve never made a box but if I did it would have the same type you use. Nice to see boxes that don’t have exposed hinges as I feel that for me it is a distraction from nice wood work.Well done…..................

Marty, I love the materials you chose for this box, and I read the rejoinder you made explaining the joint in the middle of the top. While I don’t know all the factors that led you to make the choice to join the wood in the center of the top, I would have considered trimming that beautiful veneer, book matching it at the middle and putting the extra wood needed at the two outside edges. The top is a really beautiful piece of wood. It cries out to be shown off.
The hinges are a great installation and fit. Interesting work you have here.

Marty, I am curious about the hinges. Do they stop the travel of the hinge? And where did you get them?
