Another Andy type Palm Box. These are a fun and fast to make little boxes . I have a harder time picking my wood combinations then building the box. On this one I changed the lid hinge point and added some inlay.

The wood is . . . Avocado wood top and sides.

Redwood front and back.

Inlay . . . Turquoise and Malachite

Thanks for looking and your comments.

Beautifully done box. Just enough inlay to set the whole thing off. Nice wood combinations.

This is so organic, it looks like it was grown, not made by hand…
Great Job Paul!!

Great box. Love your choice of material and excellent workmanship.

Of course, if you want to make small boxes you need to study the masters… Martyn and Sodabowski
