Default Boxes

I just made two boxes. One for a lady who wanted a mahogany box to put her Bible and papers in. The other is a memory or treasurer box made of ziricote and curly maple. Also two photos of what the original boards looked like when I started. Malcolm / Kentucky USA

I got the mahogany and the ziricote at a local German veneer facility nearby. Malcolm / Kentucky USA

Very nice Malcolm. Can't say which box I like the best. I like them both about the same.

Measure once cut twice and it's still to short.

Excellent as usual for you,Malcolm, those came out outstanding. Love the wood, never heard of ziricote before, sure is a pretty wood. I bet the new owners are thrilled pink.

Both boxes look great, but I'm real partial to the ziricote one - I like the contrast with the curly maple.
