Small box for holding sewing needles in. Has a magnetic strip inside. Made of bubinga with handrubbed poly, then waxed. The top has Glaze Coat poured into it over the sheep, thread, and needle.

That’s cool. What are the sheep, thread and needle made of? Wood inlays?

Nice box, and a great idea for needle storage. I like the inlay on the top too. Cute and appropriate.

Thanks everyone, but the top isnt inlaid. The sheep is a decal, real threat, real needle. Two layers of “bar top” type epoxy to encase it.

As a fiber artist, I’m so in love with this box. Is it a gift for someone special?

That’s a great idea. It really does look like an inlay in the photos. Your way is cooler since you combine mediums.

Etui.
That’s a classic crossword puzzle word – means: ornamental box for needles.
I know…I’m just full of this stuff.
