I recently completed this collectors box to hold folding knives or whatever….
The walnut dividers are removable if desired.

The body is Rosewood.
The lid is Walnut cut from the stump, the voids were filled with black epoxy.
The dividers are walnut.
The lining is Buffalo hide.
The dowel pins are wenge.
The disc is Black Palm with Maple and Paduak accents.
The finish is semi-gloss lacquer.
The hinges are brass pins.

I appreciate you’re taking a look ….. please leave any comments below.

Beautiful! And my family wonders why I am so protective of the walnut trees in my back yard – because they might produce wood that looks like this.

Thanks for posting.

_My day is made! Your previous box was extremely well done by the master, but this is an exceptional pallet of color and design.

Should move quickly.

I know I’m repeating what everyone else said, but that is an awesome box and the walnut makes it even better.
