I made six of these keepsake boxes.  Four were made for gifts, while the other two were commissioned pieces.  The boxes are made of cherry wood, with mahogany splines in the corners.  I used lace wood for the lids of three of the boxes and bubinga wood for the other three.  This was the first time I used bubinga.  I think it is now one of my favorite woods.  The grain is amazing once its finished.
