I bought this burl from where I work and my boss
challenged me to make something he has never seen
so here it is. I cant wait till tomorrow when he sees it.

Abraham Lincoln $1 coin inlaid on top and some turquoise.
Flocking in the bottom of the drawers only so you can still
see all of the burl in the drawers.
I put holes in the back of the box and rounded them over
so I wouldnt destroy any of the live edge on front of the box.

Hope you like this
Any and all comments are welcome
even new suggestions Im still learning
and every box has something new to figure out!
Thank you for your time!!!!

You did an outstanding job and I love it. Is that a Bandsaw box or did you make it a different way?

Thank you!
It is a band saw box!
Cut it in layers then cut out the drawers
and glued it all back together!

Fine looking burl and a great box. I bet he has not seen anything like it. Good ideas and well done!
