Default Latest Box

This one goes to Tucson.
Walnut, Oak, and Maple. Interior flocked.
All left over pieces from a run of candy dishes.
Thanks for looking.
15" long, 5 3/4" high and 4 1/2" deep.

Hi Gene,
That's a great way to use up scraps!

Nice looking box, whoever is getting it should love it.

Thanks Mike. I think she'll like it.
The center cut yielded one more tiny one. Glue is drying right now.

Very Nice, Gene.

BS boxes are on my 'learn to do " list.

This box is gorgeous.!! Do you know what the intended use of the “box” is for? May I ask how long it took you to create this container (not really a box, more of an art form!)?

Thanks for the kind words, Randy.
Knowing the recipient, it will probably be used to hold a bit of jewelry.
It probably took 12 hours to make. But, I'm old and slow.

Awesome.

Is that a band saw box? I just got my first band saw! I want to make one of those for my wife!
