This is the latest version in my pagoda series. This one is larger, has 2 drawers with a top compartment, wider natural pulls and has a black lacquer case.
The lid and drawer fronts were cut from a billet of quilted maple. The case and legs are hard maple. I used red over black Trans Tint dyes (topped with quite a few coats of my own blend of wiping varnish) on the quilt. I put a few words about the dye job on my blog.
I think that I am going to do one more in blue and black. Thanks for looking.

Beautiful finish and nice box. Love those hardware, they really set off the paint job.
