This is a Crawford style box made of myrtle burl veneer over baltic burch ply, a homemade “ribbon on a stick” banding. The interior is brown velvet and a girl in Paris. This is also a little different build of this type of box instead of milling a curved side in MDF I used burch ply for the sides.

Another really nice box Tom.
Your marquetry is just sweet. Your ribbon banding looks very real and three dimensional. The nostalgic Parisian graphic and fleur de lis are perfect embellishments for a superbly built box.

I just love your work.

Thanks

The shape of the box is elegant, and the banding and inlay are extremely impressive! Two hundred years from now, this will be an antique that someone will display in their high-end collection.

Tom,
Your marquetry contrasts nicely with the lighter veneer. Strikes a warm chord for me, as Paris is one of my favorite places. And the flour-de-lis provides a focal point for entering the box. Nice theme, nice box.
