Just completed a pair of boxes as presents for my two sons. Tried to make them as a matching pair. The body is Santo Mahogany, medallion is Tiger Maple, handle is maple and mahogany.
Thanks to Andy and his Blog, couldn’t have done it with out his info. I have turned out several boxes and I’m getting better at these with each one.

Very nice, having done a few sculptured Andy boxes myself, I can appreciate getting the symmetrical design on both boxes. Beautiful work….....................Jack
