My second attempt at an Andy Art Box. Body is walnut, lid is maple, and the “medallion” is cherry. Handle is purpleheart, and the splines are maple & purpleheart. Hinges are 1/8”brass pins. Finish is semi-gloss lacquer.

Things went a little smoother on this one. Still a ton of sanding though.

Andy’s instructional blog is here....

Thanks for checking it out!

Nice job! It seems that when people do enough “Andy boxes” they start to develop their own style.
