Butterfly Keepsake Box

Originally in Creative Woodworks Crafts Magazine. I updated to exotic woods to make the butterfly come alive. I guess it’s Intarsia since the colors are all natural woods. I used Yellow Heart, Purple Heart, Red Heart, Cocobolo and Ebony for the top and Poplar for the box body with Aspen inserts. I have also done one of these with Mahogany in place of the Ebony. It’s a four compartment box.

Hey welcome to Ljs
Awesome looking box lid, great colours.
next time you post add more pics, we all love to see inside, outside roundside and underside (well maybe not under!) :-)

Wonderful! We’re all “aflutter” now. I agree with Theresa, would you please show the inside and how it opens? It’s really nice work and thanks for sharing.
