Default Knife presentation box

A friend builds some very nice custom knives and we've been talking about a collaboration on Etsy, for him to build the knife and me to build a box. He didn't have a knife ready but I built a box anyway. And I built a knife...

The box is Walnut with Figured Walnut accents and Red Palm handles, finished in Nitrocellulose lacquer. The knife is Curly Maple, Red Palm, and Figured Walnut, finished is French polish Shellac.

Enjoy!

How is the box kept together? I see the tabs to open it but didn't see any magnets or catches. They are beautiful.

Thanks, guys! Sorry, I had that in the description and my browser crashed and I guess I forgot to add it back in when I typed it up again.

It has four rare earth magnets under the veneer on the front on both the box and lid (2 on each). It stays together pretty good in handling the box but is definitely not a secure lock.

Beautiful box and nice mitered corners. Well done.

It just occurred to me as I looked at the photos that I didn't mention, nor does it show, but the figured Walnut border on the lid is angled 7.5į. I cut those strips about 1/16" thick and then had to miter them at the corners. With very thin veneer that's pretty quick and easy but with pieces even 1/16" thick that has to be a compound angle. Came out ok, though.

Very nice. Looking at the knife is the blade wood?. It looks like tiger maple.
