For several months I have been working on some new designs based on Andy’s palm boxes. It’s been a blast coming up with the designs, although all of them are at least based on ideas I have seen here. I learned a long time ago there is seldom a totally new idea in woodworking, just our own combination of what we have seen over the years.
I now have some on consignment at some high end gift shops here in town.
The first box is Figured Maple, and of course, Bubinga. Some of you are disappointed if I don’t use it. With bronze bushings with bubinga plugs.
#2 is Mequite top with crushed torquoise inlay. Box is Zebrawood #3 is Mahogany and Figured Maple #4 is Walnut with a little Maple accent
