This is my second walnut and maple grid box. This version has a slightly thicker lid that allows for easier lift off of the cover. Finished with rub on poly and wax.
Thanks for looking

Roger, this is a wonderful box. I like how the gentle curves in the top bring out the inlayed maple grid. What a great combination of ideas. The way the corners meet and seem to bend is especially beautiful. I would love to see a picture of the inside of the lid if you could edit that in or drop it into a reply.

How is the bottom fastened into the box? How did you shape the top?

I think I can figure it out, but it would be nice to have a step by step construction guide of this project.

This is a really impressive build. Thanks for sharing your work with us.

Everything here is amaizing: shape of box, contrasting wood and grid pattern.

I bet this took quite a bit of thought to get it so symmetrical. Beautiful joinery and design, congrats on the top 3.

Did you turn the lid on a lathe and make the box using the same procedure as a bandsaw box?
