These are small walnut boxes made using the ShopBot Desktop CNC machine and Vectric Aspire software. There are two different lids, one a domed lid with a crab cut in relief and the other a flat lid with a holly crab laminated to the surface of the walnut. In the video, below, it is particularly interesting to see how I laminated a sheet of holly to a sheet of walnut and then used the CNC machine to cut through the holly all the way into the walnut to leave a crab that is nice creamy white holly.
