This is an EZ Mitre, Shell box. Click the links for construction method details.

Size – 112mm square x 54mm high (on 122mm square x 5mm, Rosewood, pedestal base)

Materials – Sapele, Yew, Sycamore, Rosewood and Birch Aeroply

Glues – PVA and CA (viscous)

Finish – Satin Spray Acrylic

The pattern was routed from 4mm thick boards, mounted on a 1.5mm Birch Aeroply backing and finish sanded to 5mm thick. The last picture shows the finished board before I put it through the EZ Mitre technique to form the box top.

Very pretty – the woods you chose provide a great contrast to each other!

You know, a few more of these and I think you could be called an expert at this! ;-)

Cheers!

A great variation on your recent theme.
Nice illusions and grain matching along with the usual excellent execution.
