What type of wood
This is supposed to be a jewelry box only reached the first stage made a few mistakes and I didn't have enough of the same wood to finnish the second phase so I modified it a bit by putting a compound cut motiff on the top, rather than waste it as firewood. The reason I am putting it on the forum is that I am not sure what type of wood the main body of the box is The motiff is cherry and mahogany, can any timber experts tell me what it is, I thought it might be iroko but the grain is very open I think it would benefit from using a grain filler.

Whatever it is, it's spectacular! The motif makes it that much more elegant - VERY nice job!

I agree, very pretty. I think the wood could be iroko, but it looks a bit reddish. The iroko I have is very brown.
Thanks for sharing

Great save. Looks good.

Harry I have no idea about the wood but that is one beautiful box. Love every aspect of it, I'm glad it didn't end up in the scrap bin.

Looks really pretty. I always loved that dogwood topper--I think it's one of Diana Thompson's prettiest designs, and it takes the entire box to the next level. Nice job on the cutting and finishing, too.
