This large box is constructed of walnut with zebra wood feet and a breathtaking bubinga lid!
It reminded me of a dragons scales thus the name was born. this box is currently touring with me to each art fair I attend!

very nice. Is the Bubinga a veneer or a solid piece? That’s one to keep, at least until the next really good one.

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and now time to work!!!

That is a good looking box and a very nice choice of woods. Is your top hinged od a lift off top? I also like the combo of BLO and poly.

The bubinga is veneered onto a solid piece of walnut so that the bottom of the lid is walnut.
The inside is basic felt lined with a small tray.

Your close but its danish oil and wax =D

thanks for the possitive feedback
