  2. Keepsake box with unique "wood pattern"

    This keepsake box was a commisioned item that I thought turned out kind of neat. It is Ziricote with Curly Maple for the top, lift and keys. I really liked the "lightning bolt" spalting design that was in the middle. You can even still see the little worm hole ! Dimensions are: 9×4 x 3 and...

    ZIRICOTE!!! I had a really nice board lying around for a couple of years and I couldn't find a project worthy of this amazing wood. So, I figured making a box for the Fair would be perfect. I had fun matching the pattern around the sides of the box, but didn't have enough left to make a top…...

  8. Wooden box; ziricote, zebra wood, blood wood, brass; handmade hinges

    Something for my mom. The white wood in the splines are white ebony. I didn't want to have to make those "stability bars" out of Zebrawood on the inside of the lid, but the piece of bloodwood I was working with was particularly unruly. The hinges are simple enough by design, but it helps to...

    I started out making the "sandwich" laminated style. After much trial and error I made a few that held up for a couple of months and one that has made it about a year now.
