Default Pillow Top Box (Reverse Inlay)

G'day all,
I haven't posted anything new in a while, have just been to busy making standard stock items which you have all seen.
Decided to play a bit and finally finish this little box. I've had the carcase assembled since mid 2009, just couldn't find a suitable pattern for the top.

I suppose you could call it a "Reverse Inlay"

It is Radiata Pine with Jarrah inlay and Bands

John, that is really cool and neat and skookum. I really like the invisible entry holes. Mine look like they were made with a tunnel bore drill. You do great work.

John, I think waiting until you came up with the right lid design was the right choice...what a wonderfully executed box! Luv the wood choices, design and uniqueness!!! Really like the tray that lifts out.
Thanx so much for sharing!!!
