This is a sexy looking box mate, both grain, woods and finsih all worked really well together, well done mate.

Thanks pal,
 
I`m pleased with it even though there are a few things i will do differently  next time, but as a trial run it came out ok.
 
Main thing is my little lad loves it as he wanted a box made by dad to keep his football cards in, problem is, his mum now wants one as well, i`ll never learn .
 
The grain on the Maple is my favourite thing about the box

 Cheers.

PS the bit of Walnut poking out at the bottom of the picture, is a packer to raise it up when i took the photo. Only just realized it is there

Hi Baz
I didn't know the wife collected the football cards as well!

Joking aside, I'm not surprised one bit she would want one.
Very nice indeed.

Very nice Baz
 
Its a very nice combination of colour. is the inner pieces added after or is it routed out of one piece ?

Marc,
 
I can`t afford to buy 3 of them football cards mate, 
 
 
Ralph,
 
Thanks, the inner up stand that the lid fits over are separate pieces, but they were cut off the side pieces when i first dimensioned the timber.  They were then put to one side, i made the box, cut it in 2 to form the lid & base, then planed the off cuts up & matched them back up so the grain followed through.
 
Hope that make sense, in short they were originally one piece.
 
 
Cheers.

Very nice box Baz.
 
What about hinges and a lock on the next one?
 
Richard
 
PS I respectfully suggest the lid be no more than one third of the total depth.

Hi Baz,
 nice job. I love the contrast between Maple and Walnut and I do agree that you have got a lovely bit of figure on the front of the maple. Well done
cheers     Ian

Love the box Baz, would adorn anywhere in the house.
 
I have just started a new box, making it from reclaimed timber, nothing as fancy as yours Baz, but 'boxes' is where I want to be!

Maple and Walnut do go well together. You will find that American Oak is aslo a good mix with the other Two. I made a Picture frame For a collection card of American coins, so I used three North Americaan woods for the frame. The only trouble, most people do not see the connection between the frame and the coins.
