Finally there was some time for the shop !!! I decided to make some more boxes but these should have a proper use. March this year I’m having an expo of my work but i didn’t have a lot in store because normally i sell prettu quick.

These boxes are made out of book-matched walnut. Top is quilted maple veneer and on the other eucalyptus burl veneer. The inside dividers are made out of maple and the bottom is MDF covered in velvet and the bottom sprayed black.

The hinges are made out of maple with a piece of brass.

The boxes will se sold at the expo and 100% of the money will go to a organisation which helps childeren who are fighting cancer.

thanks for looking

The maple figure really pops, very nice. How thick are your veneer substrates, what material? I have never attempted veneer of any sort, how was the learning curve?

These should sell very quickly. The light maple interior gives the tasteful box a very clean and crisp look that I particularly favor. The hinges are a very nice touch. Keep em coming.

My hat’s off to you not only for the beautiful boxes you make, but more for the reason you make them. Thank you on behalf of the children, Rick.
