Another Andy inspired box. The box is made from tiger maple and top is cherry. I realy like the top, put a rose on the inside because of the knots. Tried to do the grain popping on the tiger but it didn’t look as good as some I have seen. Guess it takes some trial and error to get it right.

Please let me know what you think, good or bad, its OK.

Thanks for looking.

I think moving the art to the inside on this box was a good idea. Let the wood speak for itself on the top and then have a wonderful surprise on the inside. Beautifully done CW!

That’s a nice box!

I’d be willing to try inlace in the design.

It might make the rose jump out of the box.

I used white inlace in this.

With or without it, it’s a nice box.

I’m no photographer so its hard for me to make it look like it does in person. In person it is easy to see. I would like to try it though. A little red for color with add allot. Thanks for the post as I had never heard of that stuff before. I have it on my want list now.
