Someone, who saw the box that I made about a year ago, asked me if I can make one that holds 20 watches. And I said O.K. This box is 13.5 in X 8.5 in X 5.5 in high. It was made with figured Maple and Walnut and it was lined with suede. Finished with Shellac as base coat and Deft Lacquer as top coat.

Beautiful box. I like watch boxes. Seems as if there are a lot of collectors. This one is very special. I hope to sculptor a box one day. great job.

Well done. Your design has very organic look, the wood grain complements the piece, and the finish appears excellent. Thanks for sharing.

Very nice! The walnut medallion is just the right complement to the figured maple. My maple rarely has that much color.
