Great box Tom!

Is the top a solid panel? How are you accounting for expansion in this design?

That is a good looking box Tom. I really like the inlay work and wood contrasts.

Very well done.

Fine work and simple elegance. Those smaller boxes are sometimes a harder challenge than a big one. What finish did you use and how did you join this?

Thank you all… If I can be of assistance to anyone, don't hesitate to ask.

Doug, the joints are 45 deg. miters with hidden splines and the top is a veneered panel that sets into a rabbit that is covered by the inlay.

Covering the rabbet with the inlay - genius! I have to assume you see no issues with wood movement with this trick.
The finish looks like a clear-coat film finish, do you mind if I pick your brain further on this?
