Second Box - The Wave Box

This was my second box and as I had learned my lesson about the challenges of hinges on my first box, I went for a basic fitted lid with a pull handle for this project.

The primary wood is figured Bubinga, with a single piece of Cocobolo as the base. I had been saving this piece for the right project as I liked the wave shape with the sap wood. The pull handle is hand carved from Cocobolo and is pinned to the lid with two mosaic pins made from copper and stainless steel.

The woods are striking Path914! Not sure I could have used that piece of Cocobolo as the base. It does provide an unexpected surprise when you open the box! Thanks for sharing.

Another nice one. A bit of hand carving provides an attractive accent, and the cocobolo bottom a surprise inside. The mosaic detail is also a nice touch.
