Hello LJ’s, here a sample of some figured Maple with Mahogany accents. This Maple came out of the Eastern PA. area and has some incredible grain flow. The finish is Danish Oil and French Polish adding so much to this combo of wonderful woods. The interior is line with a velvet liner along with a brass pin lid. Thanks for view…BC

WOWOWOWOW What amazing grains! They reminds me of a combination of quilted and tiger maple. A beauty it is. Your sculpting made it even more interesting! If you ever tired of looking at it, let me know, would ya? LOL

Your design and joinery makes that appear to be carved from a single block of maple. Your beautiful wood and impeccable finish makes that maple shimmer.

“Incredible grain flow” is an understatement. Absolutely beautiful and well photographed to show the grain flow. Nice design and construction
