Here are two playing card boxes I made with a combination of Walnut and Maple.
The box sides were made of some cut Walnut and Maple strips I had been saving and the tops are made of 1/4” Walnut.

These are displayed at an Engraving Store I work with, to be potentially engraved on top and presented or given as personalized gifts.

Each is finished in three coats of Deft Lacquer.

Thanks for looking!

Mike

No engraving for me please. Flawless just the way they are.

Those are very nice indeed! I have a question: Who normally does engraving on wood? Are these trophy shops normally? I have a project coming up that would require engraving of a name on mahogany and have no clue where to go to sub-contract this. Are these types of engravers normally found in communities? Can you help?
