I promised to post this project as a continuation of my weaved box – the first design. This is the second design that I finished this year. The two recipients of these boxes are my son and daughter. The third design will be on the way but I am in doubt if it will be done.

About the design, the box becomes a rectangular and had a higher height. It has a 4 division bottom layer and a tray that is added to the upper layer. The hinge is integral with the construction of the box. The upper lid is fitted with kamagong or ebony. The strips are made of 3 alternating white (popsicle sticks) and narra (as usual these are recycled parque.) The blacks are kamagong strips also from recycled.

For those who knew me, I am still the one who is still doing the woodwork but not as often as I was before.

Good luck and God bless to everyone.


Here are some additional details in pictures:

Took a photo with a mirror underneath and the box is elevated by a glass.

Very attractive piece of work that really does look like a woven bow. Thanks for posting.

Just an interesting and beautiful box! The detail to make this is amazing. Hope to see the next one finished.

This is an outstanding box. It shows a lot of fine craftsmanship.
