Let me start with a huge thank you to Andy for his inspiration. I can only imagine the amount of time and effort he put into perfecting the design, and the absolutely incredible tutorial series. Your efforts are recognized and words cannot express the gratitude.
The first picture was my first attempt. This box was kind of like cleaning out the frig at the end of the week to make dinner; the box is made of hard maple, the medallion is walnut, the splines are jatoba and the handle is ebony.
The second picture is of boxes #3 and #4, both boxes are made from the same piece of bubenga, the difference in color comes from the box on the left is finished with 3 coats of Arm-r-Seal, and the box on the right is finished with lacquer.
The last three pictures are from the last set of boxes that I made, walnut and curly maple. Obviously there is a learning curve, I have certainly not reaches Andy’s level of perfection but will keep striving for that; I have made a total of 6 boxes now and I am sure there will be more.
Again Andy, thank you.
