I like the boxes you''ve uploaded and especially this one. The woods go very well together. Must remember Pine & Sapele for future projects.
Well done and keep up the good work.

I didn't recognise that as pine until I read Marc's comment!! Nice work and nice wood! Looks a little bit like pitch pine, is it from a length of reclaimed timber?

Marc, sapele will alway's be a good contrast to any light timber, especially the whiter timbers such as white ash, maple, sycamore, pine and lime. The lovely thing's about sapele is that it is easy to work, quite dense, takes a good finish,is excellent outdoors, and the best bit of all is that it is (for a hardwood) very cheap.

Jim, I do like this box, all of the proportions look right and I like the contrast in the timbers. Of all of the box pictures that you have uploaded, for me this is your best one yet.
