The first box is ambrosia maple with a maple lid. It’s some kind of freakish burl, voids are filled with brass powder. The second box is blood-wood and maple, with a bit of bark included. They are 4×4x4ish, and finished with wipe on poly.

Nice ones. I’m not generally a fan of sculpted boxes, but it works nicely here.
