This burr walnut veneered box was the start of my love affair with complicated decorated boxes. This has a drop down front, lift out trays, two small drawers, plus a small treasure chest in the tray. It houses a Sankyo 72 note musical movement, which have become a feature of a few of my projects over the years.

Marvelous work. Great combination of veneers and inlay. I like it a lot.

That is an absolutely beautiful box! That walnut burl is spectacular, and if it sounds as good as it looks, I’m sure it’s amazing!
