Quick picture of a rather quickly made box for Mother’s day :)
Daddy will be getting a vintage handblown glass bottle, so no post here about that ;)

Top veneer is vavona burl framed with purpleheart strip, sides are european peer veneer, core is… unknown, not having my shop in Paris, I bought an already made box ^^ probably samba, it’s very lightweight.

The best part was that I paid almost nothing for a lot of ten sheets of that wonderful vavona burl.

That’s an unusual color in that burled veneer ! Where is it found out in the world ? Nice looking box !

Nice work Thomas! Love that burl. Can’t wait to post the box and goblets I made for Laura’s wedding. Wedding is Saturday but I’m giving it to her tomorrow night Everyone loves the story about where the wood all came from.

Vavona burl comes from the sequoia tree

Yep, which in turn comes from Northern America :) But I don’t remember exactly where this particular wood came from. Ken, I can’t wait to see what you made! :D
