This is my first attempt at a bow made from wood. I used maple for the base with ¼ cherry and 2 strips of 1/8 red dyed maple.

Nice job! Very fitting box for such an occasion. Might have to do one of these when we renew our vows.

Very nicely done. You should post a video on how you bend and attach those ribbons.

Great looking box. Looking at your previous projects, you might want to consider contacting a high end jewelry store to try and sell some for their “big” clients.
