Needed to make a box for a friend to use in a presentation. They made an award to a community volunteer and use the box to hold a new GPS system. She got the box too.
Bubinga with curly Maple. Came out ok I think

Only took one picture….

Looks real nice. I really like the miter splines (or whatever they are called) on the corners. Great job.

Thanks. I’ve done several of this style. It’s pretty easy to do and makes a good give away

Woodgrains show up real nice. Good work on those corners and I really like the top.

i never thought about stairstepping the size of the corner pieces like that.
Good idea, and adds that extra touch of style
Love the finish on the maple.

Beautiful. Did you dye the curly maple to get it to pop like that or did you use a different technique?

Thanks Rick
Hey, David…. good to see you. Thanks
jrockflim…. Those splines in the corners are all the same size. Their size changes because of the tapering of the sides.
Thank you, Andy
ATLJack.. No dies or stains. It’s rubbed with pure tung, then waxed.

That is a stunning piece of curly maple in the top and contrasts very well.

Nicely Done and cant wait to see what comes next.
