This is a box I made in 2007. It’s made of curly sycamore, narra, spalted maple and ebony. It was featured at CraftsMorristown in 2010. There’s more about it at my site – www.myworkshop.com

yeah, that is “just” a box! :-)

Wood is so pretty and you have made quite a show of it here. Beautiful composition and that spalted maple inset looks like an antique map to me. Is it one piece on the inside and one on the out or does it go through the lid?

That is really nice looking box. Flowing curves in woodwork have always appealed to me and you have done an excellent design.

Kookaburra – it goes through…

Spalted wood often looks a map (to another world?) – maybe it is, in some way…
