My inspiration for this series of boxes is the beach, specifically the waves and sand dunes.
The contours invoke fond memories of nature and invite touching.
Double Chocolate came to mind after building this box.The body and lid are of Brazilian Rosewood and the lid has an insert of Cocobolo Rosewood, I shaped it in a free form style like waves or perhaps frosting.
The handle is Cocobolo with a little creamy white sap wood which adds a little light to the overall dark setting.
The divider is made up of walnut wrapped around a spalted maple cube, which sets on black velvet.
This is my first project using Brazilian Rosewood and I really like it. It smells similar to Cocobolo but not as pungent.
It is very heavy and hard, but carves nicely. It has a few worm holes here and there which must have been made by one tough worm!
Tell me what you think.
Update: This sold recently.
