Cherry with matching tray

In this project I made a number of similar boxes, 12 in all, each of a different wood or wood combination, in order to become more familiar with different woods, approaches to boxes, etc.  Each box has a different configuration of wood, knobs, feet, trays and liners, etc. A few of them are shown here.  I learned a great deal from making the same basic project in different ways.
