The colors work well together, looks good!

Kinda hurts to cut up a nice strip of zebrawood, even though the goal is a worthy one 8^)

I have some zebra wood, and didn’t know what to do with it. I swear a box never came to mind, I thought it would be tooooo busy. I like the looks of what you have made here a lot, busy yes, but not too much.

Those lifts, are very nice, and I think they soften the harsh of the Zebra maybe.

Anyhow, nice work, well thought out.

Thanks for posting.

Full disclosure – the plans for the box came from Wood magazine. You can probably find them on -line, just search for ‘a gem of a jewelry box’.
