Did this one as a commision, late last year. Its another of my , what I call, cut and stick jobs. You cut strips of wood, stick them together, cut them again, stick them together again untill you come up with the final pattern.

Picture on the bench top, just as a record as this one sold.

Purpleheart box 100×100 x 52mm. Top design (all the way through) in Ebony and Sycamore. Are you seeing a theme to my work yet?

Martyn, you really know how to achieve those eye catching optical illusions quite well, by the looks of this box and your last post! The planning must be complicated, or at least it looks that way. Great job, and thank you for sharing! : )
