After seeing all these boxes on here I decided to try one out. The hinges didn’t set right, so the top is off a little, but besides that it’s OK. I like the way the wood came together for the top – it’s spalted maple, bordered by the oak, with a chechen divider down the middle

You did a fine job on that, especially considering it was your first.

Good buils. Great display of the wood.

Thanks guys! I really had fun with this – I thought about splines in the sides but decided this was fine the way it is. Maybe the next one!

Have your say...
