Pretty box and a great way to use up some scrap pieces of wood.
I see you have made a number of nice boxes. Have you considered trying some lathe turnings?

I will bet this gets people thinking beyond cutting boards for their cutoffs. Very interesting woods. Good idea.

Most of the wood is from cutting board cutoffs.
