This is one of my larger bentwood boxes. It is made from Walnut and Walnut Burl measuring 16 1/2” long, 8 1/2” wide, and 7” high. I have found that most of the Walnut Burl, that I have acquired, has a lot of holes and bark inclusions, so with a lot of finessing, I got the larger pieces cut out for the different elements. It is finished with Tung oil and urethane wipe on finish.

Jim, beautiful stuff here. I especially like the highly sculpted handle and the scalloped overlap. I would love a shot of the inside of the box. Keep boxing and keep posting.

Absolutely amazing! I really like this box. I have always wanted to make a bent wood box but just havne’t made the time to attempt it. Now, when I get to it, just a box with lid won’t cut it. I will have to try and add those special details to it, like you do. Nice work!

Very nice looking. I have to ask, what is the light colored material. It looks like a zip strip that interlocks… But I don’t think it is. Did you carve that?

These pieces are just incredible. They feel modern, but evoke old Viking styles all at once.
