I know these are pretty basic compared to some of the other boxes here on LJ, but here they are. I wanted to show especially the Orange Heart wood (Chakte Viga) because of the beautiful grain. These are designed by Lois Keener Ventura from her book Sculpted Band Saw Boxes. The smaller one is mahogany with walnut pulls and maroon flocking. The other is Orange Heart with royal blue flocking. The orange heart was a very gummy to work with as it clogged my band saw blade and also the sand paper.
