I made this for my wife. The box is maple with a narrow cherry strip inlay. Covered with clear Lexan, it made a nice display for the types of butterflies that visit our home gardens in spring and summer. My wife provided the the branching tree ( she found it at a pottery outlet store, I think ), and, most importantly, caught the little fellers. She adds a new butterfly to it from time to time.
Corners are mitered and reinforced with cherry. Finish is natural with clear lacquer topcoat.
