This is a small band saw jewelry box That I made out of spalted maple and walnut. The accent piece on the top came from one of the side pieces that i cut out of the curve. I polished that part to 600 grit and it looks like marble Finished it with SG lacquer. it measures 10 X 4 1/4 X2 1/4 “

Where’s the spalted male? I’ve never seen one of those before. The spalted maple you used in the box is beautiful though :)

Nice box. The Spalted wood does look good. The Walnut is a nice fit to it.

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and now time to work!!!

Beautiful design.

The 2 woods really do compliment each other.

I like how you carried the design of the handle through the body of the box. Very nice. Thanks for sharing!
