This is a jewelry box for my wife Sherri which features sand shaded marquetry cut in the classic style. The motif was taken from the ASFM workbook and interestingly was a study piece that Patrick Edwards cut while he was in Ecoulle Boulle in Paris and is still hanging on the wall at ASFM. The inside lid features a book matched walnut burl with a small floral motif which was a re-application of one of the flowers on the top. The box itself is locally harvested solid walnut, re-sawn and grain matched at all four corners. Splines and box trim are wenge. Inside is a single tray which slides from side to side, both box and tray are lined with black suede which gives off a luxurious aroma of leather when the lid is opened. Finish is french polish throughout which took a long time as I was learning along the way, but I am really pleased with the end result.
I’m thinking about entering this box in the Veneer Tech Challenge…but I’m not sure it’s good enough.
Thanks for looking, and feedback is always welcome.
