I wanted to do something a little different and larger than I normally do. Something a little more refined.

I started off with a basic Bubinga box and a Curly Maple Lid. I then added a Bubinga Medallion. After that it still seemed to need a little something so I added a Birdseye Maple Medallion. I then shaped the lid and handle until I liked it and applied many, many coats of tung oil.

Thanks for taking a look.
As always any comments are welcome.

Thanks, I had to take this one in the sunlight to photograph it and the real beauty of it still doesn’t come through completely. Maybe one day I should get out of the shop long enough to take a photography class.

Looks pretty gal dang refined to me.
The way you did the top yields pretty neat grain matching with the maple. Nice.

Hi Joey, that looks awesome, I like the size of this one, I could probably crap it up in 5 minutes, LOL. Seriously this came out really nice, I need to get back into box making, you are certainly doing a good job of pushing me in that direction.

Very Nice. I think the extra “medallion” really made the difference.
