Twin Sycamore Boxes. Matching boxes of curly sycamore with Koa accents The contrasting leaves are meant to give a sort of summer and fall look. Approx. 4×6 inches, and have a dadoed in bottom. The bottom is lined with black velvet. Lids are hinged with hidden pins and are finished in hand-rubbed poly.

I like the hidden hinge concept for that type of box. Also, as everyone else has said great job on the leaves and the sycamore/koa is a really cool contrasting pair. Thank you for sharing.

John,
Two more nice ones. The leaves catch your eye, of course, but your treatment of the lid panel is equally well done. It provides the perfect backdrop for the leaves. Well chosen.
