This is a set of four boxes I made for myself and three friends to celebrate the thirtieth anniversary of a house share in the late 70’s / early 80’s.

Materials for the top are Ebony, Padauk and Sycamore. The box sides are Sonokeling Rosewood. Overall size 100mm x 200×50mm

The blog for making the patterned top is here
