This is the newest addition to my custom jewelry boxes.
Bu-Do continues this series of sculptures that ties the medallion on top with the drawers. In this piece the drawer fronts and the inlay on top are all cut from a single slab of Spalted Maple lumber. The Honduran Mahogany case and maple drawers are brought together with the walnut legs and top.
A contemporary Asian piece of functional art.

Very nice indeed. You have captured the Asian design to a treat. Simple and elegant.

Bib, you have done the wood you used justice. I like the look. This is beautiful. Nice job on the photos, but I wish you would add a picture with some of the drawers pulled out. You can edit your original post at any time and add pictures in the text or the original set of six. I take it that your legs are one piece and tapered. How are they joined to the body?

Beautiful. Very nice. Have you tried wrapping the spalted wood all the way around the box instead of using the secondary wood for the side?

Very attractive box !
Would love to see more pictures of the drawers open and also does the top open and reveal a compartment hidden behind the top drawers ?

These are very creative and beautifully done. The wood is radiant and a real eye catcher.
