This is a walnut burl veneer box done with a baltic birch ply base. The banding is done with walnut, cherry and maple, the design I took from a hardwood floor border I saw, it was 12” wide so I had to down size it quite a bit, the small triangles in the banding are only 1/8” per side. The corners were also taken from the same floor, they look like little bow ties, so I used that theme in the interior. The lift handle for the tray has a bow tie handle carved from walnut. On the interior lid are two passionate tango dancers, and he is wearing a bow tie.
