I really enjoyed the tutorial Andy did on his Art Style Box. I had to try one. I had some Wenge left from a project I just finished, so decided to use that and Curly Maple for the splines, handle and medalion. Lacquer finish.

Very Art Deco in style.I love it!
Wenge and Maple are a winning combination,and your shaping really gives it life.
It looks like you mastered the inset lid too, well done.
Overall a fine job indeed!

Hey Jerry, I sent that box off to Pennsylvania just before we had the picnic. It was a wedding present. Lauren took the pictures a couple weeks ago and has been after me to post it. Have to keep the girls in the family happy! lol.
