I made this box for my younger sister. 7.75’’ x 4.875’’ x 3.375’’. Wood used are maple, jatoba, and walnut. Finished with many coats (lost count) of gloss wipe-on poly. Very happy with the finish, smooth as glass…

Your sister is very luck. This is a nice box. It looks like you are getting box building down!

Jon,

Fine work. Nice clean look with sturdy construction. Looks like you have splines down well and a good technique for attaching the bottom to the box frame. What kind of hinges did you use? I wonder how a box would look if you also attached the top that way? Keep boxing.

Great looking box. I like the contrasting woods, and you used them to good effect.

Boxguy, what did you mean by attatching the box top?
