This is my latest box and the first time I have built anything using Cherry…It is a nice wood to work with but it seems like a bland grain after using so many different other woods The knob is Cocobolo. I picked up a couple of boards while at the Lumber yard this past week. The finish is 7 coats of lacquer.
I also got a couple of Marblewood boards that will be the wood for my next box. Using the Marblewood will be a first for me also. .

Great job, this turned out well. I’m in the same boat as you on the Cherry. I like working with it but it seems kind of bland at times. Alot of people love it and I’m on the look out for that perfect peice of cherry to work with.
Very well done.

Another incredible box! You definitely have that curvy / wavy thing down. It’s your signature! All your boxes are beautiful. Oh, and please share your experience with marble wood. I have a marble wood blank all glued up and ready for another band saw box project. Have put it off due to worries over what that hard, dense wood might do to my blade!

Beautiful. The color of the Cocobolo makes for a very sophisticated look; the cherry is the perfect accent.

I like the icing.
Did you apply that with a special spreader of some kind?

Another fine box Greg.

With a bit of looking I could probably find the answer but, have you ever done a video of how you make these beautiful creations? Is this a style you originated? They’re always very beautiful and this one is definitely no exception. Great work, again.
