I designed this box to hold pocket knives.
The sides are walnut
The lid and front/rear panels are figured Myrtlewood
The dividers are walnut with a Paduak insert.
The textured pegs are Wenge
I lined the bottom with leather
This box and the previous one both sold within a week at the gallery…now to make a few more.

Thanks for looking, please let me know what you think!
I also take custom orders for most any style of box, Pen, Knife, Watch, Urn, Jewelry…etc…

Another gorgeous box Andy. Really love the myrtlewood and the sculpting/shaping on the front. You may have talked about this in some of your other postings, but curious how you finish your boxes? Wipe on/spray on?

Thank you everyone for the nice comments!
@Gary, i used satin spray varnish, several coats.
@Josh, i used 1/8 inch brass rod then capped with walnut plugs.

Andy, Love the subtle design of the interior. I’m glad it and the other knife display box sold. This is more of function meets design?
