I am working on making a few of these. This one is made of eastern red cedar (aromatic). Image is inlayed into sliding cover using the “Double Bevel Inlay” method on my scroll saw.

That is awesome, Jim. I don’t know how you find that cedar without a bunch of knots in it. Anyway, really a nice box. Is the handle stationary?

Yes the handle is stationary. I installed it with four 1/8” pegs glued in place. I used skewers that are used in cooking and they are slightly over 1/8”. I buy 2” thick cedar and re-saw to the 3/8” thickness used here. Lots of knots but I use the wood with knots for the bottoms of my boxes, not the lids. (When I can) The handle is made of bubinga as is the sliding cover.
Here is a photo of three other of these covers and you can see a large knot in one of them.

I made and sold the first one I made at our local Farmers Market so I am working on making six more that I hope to sell this weekend, at my biggest sale of the year. I am also planning to sell them at an October sale at a local winery.
