First, I apologize for getting this song stuck in everyone’s head. It has been in my mind for the last couple of weeks, so I guess it is time to start with the Christmas items.
These are a couple of bow boxes, the first is fog (found on ground) wood from a pallet. It looks like padauk and zebra wood had a baby. Seriously, though, it has not yet been identified yet. Beautiful stuff. A friend brought me a piece and asked if I would be interested in more of it. Turned him down right there. Just kidding. All he wanted in return was a box made from it. The lid is figured cherry. The ribbon is maple and padauk, cut on a scroll saw and carved mostly with a dremel.
The second box is actually two different ones made from gummy cherry and figured maple. the ribbon is bubinga and maple. Boxes are roughly 6×6x4”
