This one is Coastal Oak and Manzanita Root. It is 6×8x31/2. I tried something different on the inside bottom , I made some oak tiles. But I’m not that happy with it ,it looks to busy. I’ll try it again but make them bigger and see how that looks. Please let me know how you like it.

You did a wonderful job creating your box. A beautiful use of the rustic style, I really like it! The tiles on the inside might be a bit much but it is also a one of a kind box.

super job! very rustic with a sophisticated quality to it.
I agree…tiles are too busy and detract from overall effect.
just beautiful, however!!

Love the box and style. I like the tile and think it adds to the rustic design. Thanks for sharing

Really nice. I especially like how you designed the hinge into the sides of the box.

I’ve really enjoyed your style of boxes and this one is no different! The tile idea is great, love to see one with the larger tiles.
