Two boxes. The base and top are 3/4” Beech and the sides are mahogany. The weave inlay is Walnut and Bubinga. Finished with BLO & laquer.

They are named Grace & Evangeline.

These are extraordinary and I love the tops. The colors look very nice and everything seems so well done.

These are really nice. How did you achieve the weave effect on the lids?
