Those are both extremely beautiful. However, that lacewood looks more like the nicest QS Sycamore I’ve evr seen. Are you sure it is lacewood?

I was going to suggest Sycamore as well , but the poster doesn’t have his location listed.
This is what Lacewood looks like in my experience with it.

Calvin, those are the most spectacular pictures I’ve seen at LJs. Your camera truly captured the beauty of the the grain as well as the accuracy of the build. The dovetails were absolutely perfect. the proud standing box joints, were a nice reflection of the green & green era. Absolutely gorgeous projects. Please be my online buddy, would love to here more of your builds. BTW : LACEWOOD! to answer that question is found is what stain / finish was used. Sycamore stains lighter than Lacewood.

Say what ? Lacewood is already a dark color . What color would you try to stain it ?

Your right the piece is QS sycamore. One of my other box is Lacewood. Good eyes.

Artistry is a wonderful thing to behold. Love the lid treatment on the 2nd box, with the walnut dividing the … sapwood, I assume? Lovely technique.
