Really nice looking box. What can you tell us about the wood inlay of the frogs? What woods did you use for the box. That is a really good piece of work.

And yours fits right in with all the other great work – honest! Very interesting combo of antler and amphibian!

But, as Jsquared asked, please give us some more info on this great piece! Also a side shot or maybe one of the interior of the box would be great! You will find you have a lot of curious people on LJ as well as great woodworkers! ;-)

Welcome!

You have nothing to be afraid of – your work is really nice. I was going to ask if those were inlays and what types of wood you used.

Awesome! I’d love to see some other angles. And the handle intrigues me—is it carved like the quilting box’s handle? It reminds me a LOT of a deer antler (I hope that’s what I’m supposed to see!), and I can’t tell for the life of me whether it’s wood or an actual antler.

Wow… Welcome to LJ’s… you’ll definitely fit right in! Those frogs are excellent, I love the artistic detail you can get with inlays, I’ve never even thought about attempting them, though! Nice work!
