The box is 14” x 12” and 6” high, the feet take it up to about 7” high.

Wood is lace wood (sides) walnut top and bottom , Feet, splines and knob are Gaboon Ebony. Finish is General Finishes satin.

I used Brusso hinges.

Thanks for looking.

Nice work Petey. I know that lace wood shows a lot better in real life than a picture. Some wild walnut too.
beautiful box all around.

Nice box Petey. The woods used bring a lot of WOW factor, and the box itself is really well done. Nice job.

Nailed it Petey! (or really probably used glue)

Good to see the final project after all the teasing at Gunny’s, nice clean lines and great woods!
