This box is Zebra and paduak, I love the color combo in this box, it’s very eye catching and almost looks dangerous. Brass hinges as usual. Handsanding? you betcha, enough to make me sick of it until I attempt another box in this style! Thanks for looking.

A very different looking box and I too like the colors. How did you make those curves?

Great piece Edward! The design is striking and the colors are wonderful together. Gem of a box and thanks for letting us see it.

Your patience with the sanding is rewarded. Good box and striking colour combination.

The uniform theme in the shaping is a nice original touch. Well done!
