This is the first time I have posted a project, but I really liked how this came out and figured I would share it.
This is a basic box with mitered corners and a simple drop on top. Nothing too fancy in the construction. The bottom is lined with dark brown leather and it has disks cut from a Sea Grape branch as feet. I had some beautiful chunks of Florida Rosewood that were slabbed locally. They actually came from an old trailer park that was getting converted to a parking lot or something similar.
I loved the figure in the rosewood and thought it contrasted nicely with some chunks of blood wood I also had about.
The main conceit is the corner where I used a small live edge portion of the Rosewood. For some reason it looked like something took a bite out of the wood. I just continued the concept onto the mating pieces. I am no great artist, but the results were pleasing and people seemed to like it.
