I had some Zebra pieces that were just over 1/2” thick and couldn’t use them to sculpt a box cause they just weren’t thick enough. My wife always says that I should make some simple and less expensive boxes…so I put these 2 together.
They are both fairly small… 8×5x3.5”
Let no scrap go t waste…

Greg,

They are typical of your artistry and craftsmanship! Even your “simple” boxes are eye candy! LOL!

I love how irregular those growth rings are. Kinda reminds me of bald cypress. Nice box!

Let the grain tell the story, here. Not all woods have to be cut in a curvaceous manner. Nice box!

Thanks…I definitely like the Zebrawood’s beauty and the grain patterns. I need to find some more cause I only have one board left that isn’t big enough to make a box.

Greg,
so typical of you to underplay the quality of your boxes.
I think we all aspire to produce similar boxes.
Hope I’m not imposing on your post, but thought you might be interested in a little side/phone Table I made back in 1998 for home use.
Top and drawer handle are made from Zebrawood and the rest is Elm.
Starting to look a little worn but still one of my favourite pieces.

Cheers, James.

Nice work Greg. I’m not a big fan of Zebrawood but it works here very well.

Thanks for sharing.

The hasps are a nice touch as well as fitting the lid as you did. I think Zebrawood looks best in small boxes like these.

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and now time to work!!!

Beautiful boxes. I love the very subtle carving, as if they were not intentionally carved but gently worn from many years of loving use.

Very nice James…the elm really has some nice grain and stands out…
