This is another kinda large box for me , 14 1/2×7 1/2×5 1/2. I try and keep my boxes a little smaller I think they fit better on shelves better and friendlier to pick up. The reason I made this one is because a lady bought another box of mine at a gallery I had it at and wanted another one similar in size and style. I didn’t have any of that wood left so I dug around and found this Red Wood from an old potting bench and a piece of Cypress from a firewood pile I helped myself to. This is not a style of box I though I would have returned to but for money its not so bad. I’m very impressed with how smooth the Cypress sands to it feels like glass.
I used Malachite and red Coral for the inlay. Also replaced a knot that fell out with a piece of Manzanita burl.
Please take a look and let me know what you think… it’s ok to be critical I’m not that attached to it.
