Here is a jewelry box exactly the same shape and size as #1. Made of Laurel Burl veneer and home made banding and lined with green swade cloth and a cherry lift out tray. The Laurel burl veneer has a very striking grain and color, sort of a brown yellowish green. I do not know how well it shows in the photos but they are both curved top lids.

Another nice one. The curved lid is a mark of someone who takes his boxes seriously! My compliments.

Very beautiful. The banding really sets off the box.

Both gorgeous boxes. Some day I’ll try my hand at curved lids, but for now I’ll just admire your work.

This is really beautiful, as the other box is too. I love the banding. I love everything about it!
