Showcase cover image for It's that time of year again

Project Information

These boxes were requested by my wife. I made some last year and she really liked them, so here they are again. the one on the left is curly maple and cherry, and the one on the right in the first pic is cherry and pallet wood. I don't have any idea what kind of wood it is, but I know what it isn't for sure. It is not wenge, walnut, or panga panga, so I guess that is a start. The wood looks ink black from certain angles, and a light brown from others.

They are 6×6x6 and finished with lacquer.

Great boxes and the ribbons are wild.
Just a thought, maybe try the melting pot technique to create more natural ribbons.
Im just learning to make the boxes. I have no idea how to make the ribbons.
Blog would be great too.
Thanks for posting.
Made my day.
