This is another one of my koa boxes. It is solid koa with spalted koa trim at the top and an inlay of lacy oak.
It is 12×7x9. The finish is General polyurethane. I used solid brass box hinges that have a 92 degree stop. The removable tray is lined with black velvet.

Your comments and suggestions are always appreciated.

Magnificant! I believe koa to be very similar to the monkey pod of the East. It’s beautiful wood. We have a salad bowl set I think made in the Phillippeans, which I got in Guam in 1969 and we still use it often.

Nice one. The framed lid and subtle inlay are tasteful touches.

very nice box Cathy. I’m glad you mentioned the 92 degree stop hinges. I didn’t even know they existed. Just bought some from rockler thinking they were regular full swing, but dang, what luck. Just what I need. Got the black velvet too.
