The box is 1 inch thick when started and 1/2 inch thick overall. It is 5 inches in diameter. It sets in a circle and the two legs. The wood is Acacia Leah Burl and the legs are brazilian cherry. The 1/2 inch thick lid hides the 1/2 inch thick box up inside the lid. The lid and box are cut crom the same block so the grain matches all the way through so what you see on top you see on bottom.

Okay, got a critique. So much time and work on this piece, which looks marvelous by the way, and this is all we get to see it. One small, one angle , view? Oh the humanity! Just a taste you say, nay, I say. More, better photos! Please, thank you. Super piece!!

They say a picture is worth a 1000 words but here on LJ we can’t get enough from one picture. We need more! So please let us see more of your beautiful work of art. Maybe just two or three more pic’s will do!

Sorry about only one picture. I did this piece a couple of months ago and took it to the gallery. I had only taken one shot of it and let the gallery owner talk me into leaving it there before I got more. Bad idea it sold in two days. I wanted to post this so the person who asked me about making boxes could see you can make boxes out of anything. I will do better with photos in the future. By the way thanks to everyone for all the great comments I have been getting from everyone.

I agree with the others, the one photo is not enough, but understand with it being sold. My coffee table I just completed in persian onyx, and walnut, sold in first day it was shown. The hint of the grain on top is such a tease. LOL. Great job.
