Here are a couple more boxes where I’ve been trying some different spline layouts using various woods and trying to get some practice on my handles.

The Padauk box has an Oregon Walnut lid with Wenge handle, Walnut tray and Walnut sapwood tray rails. The splines are Zebrawood and Wenge and the bottom and tray are lined with suede.

The Oregon Walnut box has a Padauk lid and the handle is Walnut. The splines are Maple, Padauk and Wenge. I had various leftovers of Walnut and used what I thought were the most interesting looking from each piece for the sides. I intended on putting a tray in it as well put when I was cutting the inside lip, there was a huge blowout and I had to trim the box down. The bottom is also lined with suede.

As always, comment/suggestions are appreciated and thanks for looking.

Thanks so much for the kind words LJ’s.

FreidasDad-The Padauk box is about 9”l x 5 1/2”w x 4 1/2” h. The Walnut is the same but only about 3 1/2”

Excellent boxes. I particularly like the slipfeathers and I’m not known for that sort of thing.

Those are beautiful. I like the multicolored splines and the handle on the box in the 4th pic.
