The box is exquisite and a great companion for the series. Like Brian said the box joint sequence is attractive and displays both wood species very well. Of the 3, this is my favorite

Magnificent! It screams mid-century modern. I was trying to read the “waveforms” on the edges! LOL

How do you make your plys? Vacuum? Weight? Somethi8ng else?

Thanks! I was aiming for mid-century modern appeal. I use a vacuum bag, “Roarockit”; the laminate in this project was 1/4 walnut and 1/8 maple.

Beautiful box! I really like the laminate look, and well with a name like chocolate pie, what’s not to like.

The laminated sides make for a very interesting effect on the box joints. Nice tight work all round.
