This is a box that I buit a long time ago. It is the first of a bunch of vertical boxes that were 4, 6 and 8 sides, several were matching pairs. Quilted maple with a cocobolo knob. One of a very few that I kept.

Beautiful box. Did you do anything special to enhance the figure in the wood?

Steve, that box is just finish (don’t remember what). I have experemented with dye to bring out the figure with mixed results. Several projects it worked well but even after many tests I can’t say that I have figured it out.

Lovely piece. Very striking combination of shape, vertical orientation, choice of woods and unique foot treatment. I like it a lot. Hope to see more of your boxes.

Nicely done! How did you shape the sides? I have done a similar shape on an urn and mainly used a belt sander. Great job and thanks for sharing.

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and so little time!

Thanks everyone. Robert I used 4/4 stock so there was a lot of wood then shaped the sides with the band saw and a RO sander. A 4 sided box is easy, for the 6 and 8 sided its a little tougher but as a pair they look very cool on a mantel.
