Made this box for a dear friend of ours who many years ago lost her woodworking husband. She had an old box of veneers that she gave me and I placed a few of these into the marquetry flower.
The box is made of cherry with koa miter splines, and the flower marquetry includes burl walnut (background), birdseye maple, quartersawn maple, pearwood, sapele and figured teak. The flower design was my modification of a 17th, early 18th, century marquetry segment from a William & Mary tall case clock.
I covered the inside of the box with a floral Japanese washi paper which I attached with 3M spray adhesive.
