This is the third box of a set of six that I started on boxing day and is for my wife.
The design I used here is somewhat zen and japanese ,I am really into this style and try different design elements in each box.
The woods are mahagony and heat treated maple with a poly wipe on finish .

Hi Kiefer,
I love it.
Beautiful lines and yes really full of Zen.
This heat treated wood, is that something you do or something you buy?
Your wife are going to be so happy.
Best thoughts,

Very cool Kiefer. The general shape really works but my favorite is the texturing on the body and lid. Especially how you chose certain areas on the lid to do it. Very nice and inspiring.

Kiefer; Beautiful box. It certainly draws the eye…great feeling of strength and presence. You have to tell us about the “heat treated” process.
