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.
