When I first saw the grain in this wood I just “had to have it”......

As usual it is finished with Danish Oil and Black Bison Wax.

This finished out to feel as “smooth as a baby’s butt”!

Dimensions are:

12 x 8 x 4

Nice work and agree that the grain is full of character and expression. The bloodwood is a great contrasting match. Only wish the Thai/Burma rosewood was blessed with such a dramatic grain.

Keep it up

Nicely done. It’s always a joy to work with that special piece of wood and see it move to completion.

Gene… I really got a thing for this box… Talk about outstanding work my friend. You have me wanting to get my hands on some Honduras rosewood after seeing this piece. Can’t get over how well you brought out the real beauty of the wood. There is no doubt that you got the magic touch…

Thanks for sharing Gene…

I have to agree with you about the wood, bold and striking grain. You’ve really done it justice with this box. Its a real beauty, Gene.

Wow! The grain just jumps out at you and has such a rich color. The bloodwood is a perfect compliment.
Very nice work Gene, and your dividers are outstanding!

Nice grain wrap. Were you able to get all 4 corners lined up?
Very well done
