This is my latest project. Worker bees are a good metaphor for woodworking, especially considering the amount of time that went into the honeycomb and bee. Work, work, work!
The box and till lid are curly maple. The till frame is mahogany. The honey comb, top and bottom are movingue. The bee is movingue, wenge, and dyed black veneer. The honey colored movingue is one of my favorites. It’s great for gold highlights in any project.
The wings were cut out of the background, shaded, and re-glued into the background, then scored with an exacto knife, then filled with ebony saw dust.
Anyway, thank you for viewing and happy wood-WORK-ing!
