I used a Wood Magazine plan for this box with a couple of changes. It is made of Bird’s Eye Maple, Red Cherry and Bubinga. If I were going to make another one I would make it bigger, the dimensions provided in the plan are kind of small, but I did not realize that until I was well underway. Live and learn, :-)

Great job; nice looking box. Love the choice of woods on this one – the bubinga really offsets the maple and cherry well!

Wow, great job! Are the legs/feet 2 pieces or 1?
