I've made about a dozen boxes with this style. Simply a "U" shaped box tray, slabbish end caps, and the lid. End caps are profiled a bit with arched top and bottom and sloping front.
They are quick to make, not much fuss and a good use of wood varieties.
The box is about 12"w 4"h 8"d Finish is Mohawk satin pre-cat.
Primary wood is some more of the cheapish 5" Jatoba unfinished flooring from my dwindling stash. I've made a lot of recent projects with walnut and I wanted to break that pattern, but still have something contrasty and dark. Comes the white oak, fumed till crispy, forming the front panel and lid frame (all 1/2" which x 3/4" wide) Back panel is also Jatoba.
Front panel is some quilted mahogany/sapele, not sure which.
The lid is laser cut veneer on a quilted maple field. The lid underside is the butterfly offcut from the lid. Hinged on 3/16" brass rods.
"black" in the bug is fumed etimone and the body is, I believe, yellow heart with an orangish cast. Light color spots are aspen. Underside of the lid has a pommel euclayptus field. (panel without finish applied)
Interior is lined with black synthetic felt on the bottom.
People seem to love the trays to increase storage and keep small stuff organized.
Hard to see in the contrast of the photo, but the long sides have ring-roll rows (For some reason I always figure people have a gazillion rings) Lift handle in the center is a walnut offcut from some drawer pulls I made
Frame is cherry, still whitesh from machining but the base stock had a good red color that hopefully will return. No finish applied. Base of the tray is Macassar ebony. Corners are reenforced with round head brass tacks, holes pre-drilled and then epoxied.
