A while ago I was asked to make a prototype poker chip box for a client. I made this curly maple box to show him. However, we could not come to an agreement and that’s as far as it went.
I liked the size and shape quite a bit, and had some cool woods laying around, so I decided to make some more. Curly cherry, crotch walnut, spalted maple, curly cherry with shell inlay, curly oak, then closer pics of the walnut and cherry boxes.
The oak and walnut lids are just oiled, the maple and cherry lids are shellac’ed and buffed. I even took a few of them to the shows I did at Christmas time. If you can see it… there is a gouge in the lid of the shell box. I set up my display, went for a coffee and came back… someone had gouged the lid…. not impressed.
Since none of them sold, I get to keep them for myself. I am calling them multi-purpose boxes because I am currently using them for all sorts of things, none of which is holding jewellery.
Thanks for looking in.
