    Segmented and Plywood box

    A new box, the top and bottom are segmented and sides are baltic birch plywood. The knob is ebonized walnut.

    Looks like nice tight glue joints. Good looking box.

    Really cool Jim! Could you give us the size and finish? The combination of woods is classic and well used in your box...gotta love plywood!

    Bernie and JB already used the first word that came to mind - cool - but I'll use it again. Very cool box, Jim.

    Certainly different with the use of the plywood. Looks very good.

    Thanks everyone. It's 8"W x 4"H and I used 5 coats of Hut Crystal Coat and 1 caot of MinWax paste wax.
