Great box, love the wood choice, shape and the feet provide a very interesting shadow line. Well done!

Very cool design with the curved sides and some very nice maple.
Care to share how you shaped those sides?

Thanks. To shape the sides I drew the shape I wanted on the end of the board. Then eyeballed about five bevel cuts on the table saw to remove most of the waste. I finished the curve with a belt sander.

Thanks for the quick answer. You are better with a belt sander than I am!

What’s the trick to getting little hinges like that installed exactly right?
