Playing card box

This little box holds 2(or 4) decks of playing cards. It is of Ribboned Maple and Wenge. The handle is black metal. I love this combination and wish the grain showed better in the Wenge. It really shows more than it does in the pictures. Thanks for looking!..........................;-J (The finish is sprayed laq.)

Nice combination of woods ! The continuity of the grain on the maple really paid off here.

I agree with MC. You did a good job with the Maple. Even if I can’t see the grain of the Wenge, the color contrast is well done.

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and so little time!

The grain in these pictures shows enough for me to see the beauty of the box brought by your excellent craftsmanship!!

Absolutely beautifull. Wel made and spectacular contrast in the wood.
