This is a collectors card storage box I made for my son a couple of years ago. He is an avid “Magic – The Gathering” player and card collector. He has several thousand cards. This box holds 5400 cards and is made from bubinga and curly maple. The internal dividers are adjustable. The box sides are joined using traditional box joinery. The dragon carving is a combination of CNC and hand carving. The finish is hand rubbed arm-r-seal.

Those woods make a stunning color combo! Very cool box. I need to go find myself some bubinga now.

As a player of Magic back when it first came out, I think your son will be the envy of the tournament! Just don’t let him wager it LOL
