Hello LJ’s, this is my latest made from Birdeye Maple, Rosewood and Tiger Maple. Finish off with Danish Oil and a French Polish. The Rosewood is what really set this one off, so rich in color making the eye’s of the maple standout. Thanks for viewing your friend in woodworking Blkcherry

what a great looking box and some mitey fine wood combinations…!
how do you get the top to open? Do you press down on the back side of the pin hinge?

What a beauty, Wilson! A new shape…the top looks like a faceted jewel…., and the wood combo is spectacular… nailed it.

Lenny thanks for viewing, hope all is well my friend.

Greg The Box Sculptor a slight bit of pressure on the back portion of the lid and it just pops open. Thanks for viewing.

JB i like your description of the faceted jewel thanks.

Don the inside is lined with a velvet liner, not much to photograph.

Very nice Wilson.
You do such fine work.

You need to do a blog on your french polishing technique.

This one exceeds your usual high standards. The rosewood is nice but I love the birdseye maple figure. You are another boxmaker that I know who built it as soon as I saw it.
