Default First try in laminating wood

My inspiration for this box was the book from Carole Rothman. I used bubinga for the center piece, ebony and maple for the lid. The box is made of hornbeam, the bottom of bubinga.

Very nice woods there and a beautiful box. I have not tried the laminating as yet as I don't have the room to do or the means to do it but want to give a try. Will have to look further into it. I know it can be tedious but like Carole says you can do a large enough piece of wood and you'll have wood for several projects. Great job on the box. Have a great day Fay

Angelika, your box looks beautiful! Those color combination just work so well together, and you did a wonderful job.

What I love about those boxes is that they're not complicated to make, but with the right wood combinations, they really rise to the next level.

Great start for a "first try"
Hope you are hooked enough on boxes to keep creating and sharing.
Well done!
