The fun thing about this style of box is there is no end to the designs and wood combinations you can come up with. Youi can be productive and creative all at the same time

This is Bubinga and Figured Maple. The curved inlays go all the way through.
I band sawed the lid and re-glued using strips about 1/8” thick. I soak them in water for about 10 minutes to make them more plyable.

Thanks for looking

Really like this one Kent. Looks like it took a ton of time to produce.
Thanks for sharing your work with us.

Kent, this box is beautiful. It’s simple and elegant at the same time.
