Sage Brush trunk was sliced into oysters, glued to a 3/8 plywood substrate, and leveled with a router plane jig.
the voids were then filled with turquoise and epoxy. The piece was cut to size for the box sides and each piece was cut at 45 using a jig that allows a 45 to be cut without tilting the blade (or in my case, the table) to form the box.
The lid and bottom are mesquite. The tray is Walnut. The interior is black flocking.
