Project Information

This is a flame birch box with a birds-eye maple top. The ribbon handle is a combination of cherry with Quina as the outside lamination, and was wrapped and recessed into the box sides. Quina was also used for the corner points. A majority of the wood is from Maine, except of course for the Quina. The finish is natural tung oil.

Very well done. Also - I had never heard of quina before. I did some quick research and learned a little about it. That is a beautiful wood.

Awesome work here, I was just about to start a box out of flame birch and birds eye maple myself, I didn't think of adding the cherry though. Nice combo!!
