I posted a blog about this box but never put it in my projects. So here it is. The box is Maple. The branches are Wenge. The leaves are a waterfall bubinga, cocobolo, and yellow heart. The border of the Leather is bubinga. For full details check out the blog “The Box”. This piece is for sale. Please e-mail me at or visit my etsy site at Thanks for looking.

That is a very impressive. I love how the branches continue from one piece to another.

I’m not at all a fan of leather. Never have cared for it. That being said, I love every other detail about this box. The Wenge branches are very cool. I haven’t mastered the patience or attention to detail enough to pull off an intricate inlay like yours. Haven’t checked out the blog, I’m crossing my fingers that it is easier than I think. You’ve got me thinking inlay and marquetry, might have to give it a shot soon. Again, very nice!

Hi kolwdwrkr, I really love this box. I need to find 20 boxes for the back end of a book, I’m writing. Please let me know if you would be interested. If you go to this link it will give you the information. Thank you.
