I’m calling this box ‘Gentle Safari’ as it is a place to store the tokens of memories, the little treasures, that one collects along life’s journey.
It has an ebony lid that has been accented with 3 almost parallel Zebrawood strips. I was trying to simulate the randomness of the Zebrawood grain and give it the sense that they will meet at some point in the distance. The bottom is also accented with a strip of ebony. The ebony base raises the piece almost 3/8 of an inch, which elevates it with a hint of shadow. The sides are African Zebrawood.
It stands almost 3” tall and is 4 1/2” square. It is finished with wipe-on poly and lightly sanded between each coat to give it a velvety touch.
I had a lot of fun creating this box, a lot of fun.
Thanks for looking.
