These three boxes were commissioned by one of my wife’s co-workers. They will be given to three of her friends that are helping with her wedding. She wanted them all alike, but different enough to make them their own. She has purchased one of my boxes in the past and she really likes the wooden handles, so, I really wanted to come up with something a little different and make them slightly over-sized and funky shaped to help them stand out.
The main boxes are made from African Mahogany with Purpleheart or Padauk splines. The lids are Purpleheart, Padauk, Tennessee Cedar and Red Oak. The handles are Quilted Maple, Purpleheart, Lacewood and Walnut. They are lined with purple or tan suede.
Anyone looking to make a similar styled box can check out Andy’s great tutorial here. As always, comments and critiques are welcome. Thanks for looking.
