I made this jewelry box out of Padauk and Maple Burl. I really like the orange color in this piece of wood and decided to try rattle can Shellac to try to keep the color. I am not sure I like how shiny it is, but the color is great. Two different customers loved the design and size, but asked me to make it in Walnut. The customer is always right? Someone will have good taste and buy this one! I will make two more out of Walnut. 12” x 10” x 6”

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and so little time!

That is a great box! If you don’t mind me asking what are you charging for them? If you don’t want to post it here just message me.

That maple burl is exceptional. A beautiful job.

Very nice but…..it would have been better in walnut. <—Had to say it! LOL

Robert, the customer may always be right but he is not always smart.
That is a fantastic box. I love padauk and the maple burl looks great with it.

Robert, as Dorthy Parker famously said, “You can lead a ‘horticulture,’ but you can’t make her think.” (Read it aloud.) I like your color scheme.
