This is another flame box elder box built similar to the last one but with a few improvements. My brother-in-law like the one I built for my sister-in-law so much he ask if I would make one for their gran daughter. I used a brown suede for the liner to match her big brown eyes. He wanted her name carved on it so I used my new dremel router base to help aid my hands for steadiness. First time I carved a name on a box and I am pretty well pleased.
The size is 10 1/2’’ x 5 1/2’’ x 3 3/4’’ high. I used a satin lacquer so the Padauk wood wouldn’t take away too much of the beauty of the natural Flame in the box elder. Pic 3 really gives you an example of the grain on this, but not enough justice. I should add, the box elder was from a tree we had cut down a couple years ago. Imagine how surprised I was then.
Thanks for looking.
