This box is bird’s eye maple with purple heart, red and yellow veneer, and white oak. The ribbons are 1/16” thick and about ¾” wide. I have been practicing on similar style boxes getting ready to tackle this project. I am building two of the boxes at the same time because I had enough ribbon stock glued up to make two.Time to search for new inspiration.

That is impressive! I would love to see a blog on how you created the ribbons. Also, how did you build the oval box – was it created on a CNC or a band saw?

I used patterns from a book by Carole Rothman “Creative Wooden Boxes from the scroll saw” from Rockler. All the work was done with a scroll saw, drill press and oscillating sander.

That Box is absolutely awesome. Thank you so much for sharing it.

-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

Simpson, nice job. I like your choice of woods. The oval body was an interesting choice. This is work to be proud of. Look here. Keep boxing and keep posting.
