This box is done in bubinga with a figured soft maple lid. 4×4x8ish. Wanted to try a new wood, and this stuff has a real depth to it when it is finished.

I think this is just a beautiful box! Love the sculpted lid, and cut design in front, all of it. Very nicely done, bigogre, and welcome to LJs.

Lovely box, as for your title? would that be a reference to a particular movie involving an elf?

Thats great!

I love the asymetry. And the finish looks fantastic.
