Decorative Keepsake Box Woodworking Plan

from the WOOD Store

Lacewood contrasts with walnut on a long, low box you can build in a weekend. Small boxes make perfect projects for those too-beautiful-to-toss scraps. For the sides and ends of this box, we used a long-saved cutoff of lacewood, a species with chatoyant grain that shows an almost three-dimensional depth. The walnut feet and lid stand out against the lighter box. A handle combining both woods tops it off.
