This box I named BRANDY because of the beautiful colour the cherry turned when I put on the finish .
This is a box that I had no idea what it would look like and I started with a cherry board and just went from there adding aspen and walnut for contrast just let the design evolve as I tried different ideas and in the end I think I got a beautiful box that will make a nice gift .
The box contains cherry ,aspen and walnut and the liners are made from heavy upholstery cloth and solid brass hinges.
The size is 12” X 6” X 4” and even so it does not conform to the golden rule it has a very balanced look .

Wow…! what a great looking box. The cherry, aspen and walnut make for a real nice combination and your craftsmanship is as excellent as always… Now you can sit back and drink a bottle of Brandy and enjoy Brandy.

I once had a dog named Brandy, but your box is definitely not a dog Klaus. Great work with beautiful wood contrasts and beautiful inside and out.

I like this one a lot. The colors work really well. I’m in love with the lid treatment, both inside and out – the way the straight grained walnut borders the center medallion. The low pedestal feet anchor the bottom nicely. Nice design and execution.

Very nice job my friend.
I like the way the shape transitions down from the top, and you wood selection is really eye catching.

Really nice combination of design features, wood colors and grain patterns Klaus.
This one just has “Having a ball playing in the shop” written all over it.
It is great to see you getting the most out of every minute of your well earned retirement.

Love the box.

A fine box. I do like the detail you have put into this design. You are obviously spending many happy hours in your shed making these masterpieces.
