This box was commissioned for a Houston Dynamos fan. I decided to do the padauk and maple soccer ball inlay instead of the logo. The box is made of Walnut and the lid is alder banded with padauk.

Thanks for taking a look.

Sorry, the finish is Polycrylic. I almost always use it and almost always forget to list it.

That box came out really nice and the socker ball logo adds a really nice touch. I am sure your client will really appreciate it. The color combinations work quite well together.

Nice job getting all the color from different woods rather than dyes.

I never do dyes unless it’ en my epoxy. There are so many colors in nature I try to so even stain. That’s why one my favorite finishes is MinWax Polycrylic. It’s water based to warm soapy water cleans everything without having all the dangerous chemicals around, and after having my kids carrying around boxes from the age if 2 and up I feel good about bout the miter splines and polycrylic. Still perfectly clear after all this time and now chips. The wood is still the same color it was the day I finished it.

Joey, beautiful work as always. Thanks for showing this to us. I love the choices of wood and the sheen you have built up. I would love to have seen a shot of the inside of the box to see how you did the hinges and the interior. Keep boxing and keep posting.
