Checkerboard Box #23
This box is a slight variation on my last Checkerboard Box. This box is slightly larger and made from purpleheart and maple. I had a little trouble when I was gluing the purpleheart and maple cubes so a few are out of alignment, but there is one good size!

I really have to get more involved with my CNC because you are making me very envious!

I like this box.
It reminds me this breadboard and of this cupboard which all remind me of Salvador DalĂ­ work.
All a different pespectives and examples of woodworking.

Roger, this box is so beautiful and nicely done. I love the very creative design. It’s very nice craftsmanship.
