A box just finished, made of walnut and birdseye maple with a homemade ribbon banding. A little on the large size for me, 17”W x 9”D x 7”H. finished with shellac.

Walnut and birdseye maple is always a winning combination and this is a winner too! Very elegant looking!

Beautiful and elegant Tom,

The ribbon banding, superb, (I still need more practice on that too)

AS the Roger boxmaker says:. Interior astonishing as well. I really like it.

Take care

Nice job on the banding, Tom. How did you get it to wrap around the large radius on the top without breaking?

Tom that is very nice work. And yes that is big, but I’m sure the one that uses it will think its perfect in size.
