Thank you Andy for the inspiration. She loved it. Outside is sapele with a walnut burl for a handle and crushed turquoise inlay in the knots. Inside is teak bottom with walnut dividers. First time shaping wood like this and will defiantly be doing more.

Nice box. I don’t know that I have seen a sculpted box with crushed turquoise inlay before.
