I posted the sculpted Bamboolzed box recently and was not very happy with the way the bamboo looked when sculpted. This box was already glued up and ready to be sculpted but I decided to just keep it plain and simple instead of spending time sculpting when I knew the end result of the bamboo would not be to my satisfaction.
NO, those are not big gaps on either side of the top… I added a couple of thin strips of Cocobolo to the edges of the lid to add a wee accent however… A good reason why I rarely throw away any small scraps of exotic woods…
The plain flat bamboo actually shows up better when plain.
This is the last of the bamboo and unless they sell quickly I don’t anticipate buying any more.
11×7x4.5” with alligator leather bottom and sealed with lacquer.
