A buddy of mine is involved with a charity called Joy Ride and he asked me if I could build a box for the silent auction. I ended up building two… Then I had enough scrap left from the two boards to make a bowl also so all three pieces will end up going as a set probably. The wood is Peruvian Walnut and Curly Maple.

The shaping and over all look of these boxes were inspired by the boxes I’ve seen posted on this site by Andy… So thanks for the ideas Andy!

Three great pieces for a great organization. Their therapeutic horsemanship programs help a tremendous amount of individuals. Great job on all three pieces, they should fetch a tidy sum.

Handsomely done! Those boxes should bring a nice bid.

Very nice, love the looks of these.
What did you finish these with to keep the maple so light?

Nicely Done!
The combination curly maple and Peruvian walnut is striking. Excellent choice
I worked with Peruvian walnut for an inlay, the grain and the color are fantastic.
