My daughter, Rachel, asked if I would make a box like hers so she could give it to her friend Lacey as a wedding gift.
I stayed with my basic design, but opted to omit the wild shaping. I didnt want to copy Rachels box exactly, just the colors and style.
I had this deep red, even grained piece of Bloodwood and set that into some figured Maple. Its all topped off with several coats of lacquer.
Rachel said it got a lot of attention at the reception. I didnt even know the bride, but I was really doing it to please my daughter…which it did.
Unfortunately, this is the only picture I have.
