I made this box for a book I wrote in 2013 called Wooden Boxes.

I usually post everything I make here on Lumberjocks but I forgot to post this one.

For this box I made my own banding out of curly maple and walnut, to layout the
Greek Key corners on the top.

The veneers are Karelian Burl & Quartered Cherry, here is a link for book on Amazon
if you’re interested.

Thank you for looking.

Excellent work, that took a few hours of love. Hope you and Patti are doing well, I’m fine and safe in Florida in my sleepy little town. Hope to see you again someday.
