This is made from bubinga, aspen and small bit of mahogany wrapped around the burl on the top. It is about 8 X 5 inches. It is not perfect but I am going to keep it for myself and I learned a lot.

This is one beautiful box.

This looks really nice and nice detail work, just because you don’t think it’s perfect I bet there are plenty of others who think it’s perfect.. Plus you say you learned a lot, than it was all worth it.

Stellar job.. is the top concave? Can’t tell if it is or just distortion from the camera lens
