Default Heart-shaped Box

I put on my gallery my last box (with rings). It's my one pattern... I built the box with a cover in Walnut (european), and 4 rings of 1.5mm: Top one, is Cherry wood, with some pyrography flowers adding, second ring is arolla pine, 3rd is walnut, bottom ring is cherry. The bottom is in pine (5mm).
The cover is only put on the box and I made a small ring in pine (5mm) to block (just the dimension inside the top ring).
See attached pictures... in my gallery you can see only one picture.

Very nice box, Simon! The grain on the top really sets it off nicely.

Very very nicely done box Simon. I congratulate you on rescuing the wood and using it to make such a lovely box. Thanks for sharing it with us.

Hi Simon, I agree with Rod, I like the wood-burned flowers, but then I'm a flower child anyway so that explains that! GREAT JOB!!

Thanks for your congratulations...
When I was on the sawmill I choose the grain of the wood of the rescuing walnut... in a wooden heap of more than 1m in height but pieces of only 20cm broad and 20 and 30 cm long, in different wooden essence. . . I have therefore any deserves for it.
