The top is made of Cherry, Purpleheart, Yellowheart, Zebrawood, Cedar and Walnut. The bottom part of the box is red oak. The box was finished with Shellac.

This is a beautiful box. She should love it. I love the colors. My Grand-daughters would love this. I’ll have to start learning to scroll saw :)

Sometime back circa 1997, I kind of tied my online identity to butterflies by registering the domain name, and a bit after that a friend bought me, which is where I now keep the work-safe but still personal bits of my life. So I have kind of a butterfly affinity.

This is very cool and inspiring. I love the motif. Thanks!

Wow – this is just georgeous – really!

How does one go about making something like this? I am just learning to use the scoll saw and would (someday) like to make this for a “special someone”.

Is there a plan available or was this your own design?
