Had some off cuts…..what better to do with them than make a simple box. Sides are maple, keys are cherry, top is glued up cherry, maple and walnut. Thanks for looking.

Very nice. I really like that color combo of the 3 species on the top.

A very nice box indeed, good lines, nicely done. Does a shelf or something fit inside?

Hey Kindlingmaker….there is a small tray that goes in the box that I have not finished yet. I envision this as a jewerly box. Thanks for the kind words.

Nicely done! Maple, cherry and walnut always seem to work well together.

Great box! Perfect combo of woods.

Love the lid stripes and keys!
