I made this box with walnut and red oak. It measures 10 1/2×8 x 4 3/4. I cut the lid flush with the box, rounded all the corners and finished with 6 coats of Minwax satin poly.

Beautiful box Gary, nice design inside and out. The wood is beautiful and the finish makes the grain really stand out. Excellent work.

Very Neat work Gary!!! You always do very clean and tight joints. I like the way the top/ Lid of the box indents in, another appealing aspect of the finished project.

I can see you doing segmented boxes in the future.

Good work!!
