A Zee box made for an old friend’s 60th birthday. He’s a Harley rider, it had to be black and orange.

Apparently well received, unfortunately I wasn’t at the party. Prior commitments.

Ebony and English Yew. 150mm x 93mm x 57mm. All the other usual suspects (see Zee).

Very nice. I may have to try one of these, as it is one of the few of your designs I feel I’d have a shot at copying. :-)

You do great work, I love looking at your boxes. I’ll have to take a stab at one once I get caught up with my own projects. Thanks for sharing.

Yet another vanishing darkness or advancing light – could be either, just like is the glass half empty or half full? Very well done, Martyn!

Very nice work, Martyn. I like the warm look of the yew in this combination.

It seems that you didn’t have any Osage Orange handy, talking about orange wood.
