Here is an attmept I made at an Andy Art box. The medallion is bloodwood which was HARD to work. I was going to try to do some more sculpting and shaping but that bloodwood was just too hard.

This was a fun project to do, I started off with 3 boxes and one of them ended up in the workshop scrap bin. The other 2 worked out well but I only managed to get pictures of one. It was my first time using shellac. I did like the finish but wasn’t used to working with a finish that cured so became tacky so quickly.

Thanks Andy for taking the time to put such a great tutorial together. I don’t think I would have attempted this if it hadn’t been for you.

Nice work on the box. They are addictive and also easy to mess up! I like the curly/quilted maple (if my guess is right)

-- some day I hope to have enough clamps to need a clamp cart!

I just finished my first Andy box this past weekend. I used maple and cocobola with paduak splines. Yours looks great.
