This may have too many design ideas, what do you think? The base and box joints were inspired by the Greene and Greene brothers and of course the top is thanks to Artboxes by Andy. I may have gone a little crazy in the design.

The sides are Shedua and uses brass pins to hold the joints together. The top is Zebra Wood and the base is Walnut. The interior boxes and dividers are Blood Wood. It is finished with Danish Oil and spray lacquer. The inside bottom is lined with navy velvet.

I really like the way the Zebra Wood looks carved. What do you guys think?

This box looks totally unique in spite of it’s Greene and Greene inspiration. It shows a lot of creative talent. I might have used a less grainy wood for the body, but that would just be a personal preference, and not a criticism.

That is a wild looking box with a lot of design features. This one looks like it was not easy but you mastered it. My zebrawood is very porous and difficult to finish. Was yours?
