this is a box that was ordered for a anniversary present ,
from a friend for his wife .
for the native american church .
he wanted a heart with a lightning bolt thru it ,
a tatoo she has somewhere on her body ( i didn’t ask where ) .
i did the inlay with the lightning from holly ,
and was prety proud of it ,
then he called me and said she heard about it ,
but didn’t want the lightning in it ,
as that was a personal thing .
so i routed that off , and just did the heart shown .
the box body is alder , the top aromatic cedar ,
the heart is redheart , with a blue dyed epoxy background .
the tray is aromatic cedar with a birch 1/8” ply bottom ,
and slides back and forth for access to the bottom ,
and can be lifted out for total access .
the aromatic cedar is to keep the feathers ,
they use in their ceremonies from being bug infested .
hope you like , thanks for looking .
