Set of 4 Burr Boxes Complete

I've just completed a set of four dovetailed boxes which have been on and off my bench for a while.
They are what I would class as a desk box about 14" wide. This is an ideal size for jewellery, remote controls, stationary, pens, glasses, mobiles etc, a great all rounder.
I decided to use a single wood for the sides along with the burr of the same wood for the solid panel.
The first one shown here is brown oak, a favourite wood of mine.

All the boxes bottoms were fitted with padded pig suede and then lined in wood to gives a soft close to the lid. The two oak boxes were in bottle green with aromatic cedar of Lebanon linings.

The oak box, which all along I thought was going to be my favourite, now I'm not sure!

Below is in American walnut with a lovely claro walnut panel.

The final box is English walnut with some fantastic grain in the burr panel.

I seem to sell a lot of my boxes to woodworkers, so if anyone wants one they are £475 ($715) plus shipping each.
