Default A couple of boxes

A couple of boxes.

My daughter in law requested something with an oriental motif. So this is what I came up with. Both are made with curly maple and Bolivian rosewood. Finish is tung oil finish and wipe-on poly. Insides (and part of my workbench now) are flocked.

The first two pictures are the prototype, just to check the dimensions and general scale of things (and to see if I knew what I was doing). I reduced the height of the second one, which I will be giving her, by about 1/4 inch. Slightly shorter looked a little better to me.

First two shots, mostly curly maple with Bolivian rosewood legs, etc. 5" by 3 1/4" by 3 3/4" high.

Second two shots I reversed the wood. 5" by 3 1/4" by 3 1/2" high.

Very pretty, you definitely nailed the oriental motif. I'm sure your daughter in law will love it.
