Tiger Box

I mainly make turnings and boxes, after seeing some of the marquetry on LJ’s I thought maybe marquetry would add a little to my boxes. After trying several different styles I settled on the double bevel method using a scroll saw. The box has a curved lid and I used Mozambique veneer and homemade banding. The interior is gold colored satin with a brass pinned lid and quadrant hinges.

That is really sweet Tom. The eyes really make it come to life.
I like the tiger stripes on the box too …..... Zebrano?
And of course your box making has always been absolutely top notch.
