These two boxes are 6×8x4, and made with african ironwood and cherry, with a polished agate lift. I really like the color variations in the ironwood, cream, peach and black streaks, and it shimmers in the sun. It is a very difficult wood to work… it is extremely dense and reeks havoc on the tools, but it is rewarding getting it to shine. I used ca glue to keep the bark on the cherry, and the agate slice is simply epoxied into place.
