This started off with a Bubinga box with a Walnut lid. I went to add the miter keys and likedthe way the White Oak looked next to the Bubinga. So I added 2 Oak and 1 Walnut miter key to each corner. At this point I need to pull the Oak into the lid, so I wrapped the Walnut with White Oak. After looking at it that way I decided I also needed to pull the Bubinga up onto the lid. So I did the inlays. I have been doing this quite a bit recently so I decided to miter where the Bubinga strips cross. I think it’s a very nice detail. Then looking around the shop I spied a piece of spalted oak I saved from the fireplace last winter and instantly knew I had found the medallion and handle.
I like this one a lot. Thanks for taking a look and for any comments you would like to leave.
