I made this box for a friend of mine. It’s made of zebra wood, walnut burl veneer on the top and maple for the splines.

Beautiful. Absolutely beautiful. I have always loved Zebra wood and you did an outstanding job matching the burl veneer and Zebra wood. Congrats my Billie. Added to favorites. Do you have additional build pics you could share concerning the fabrication of the pinned lid?

That is a nice looking box.

From the pictures it looks like the outside is curved. Do you curve the wood first or after the box is complete?

Hey Billie,

Beautiful box. The splines are a wonderful understated but dramatic accent the zebra wood/maple contrast really is gorgeous. I especially like the angled mitre son the corners. Nice touch. What did you use for finish? What is the material in the inside wood? Is it black flocking or did you insert some ebony veneer? Regardless, great job!
