Default Celtic Inspired Boxes

Here are a few Celtic inspired boxes I have made. I use the same basic shaped box and just add the different adornments to the top and sides. The overall size of the box is roughly 5 1/4 square by 2" deep ,top and bottoms are 3/8 thick.
Woods used
Celtic Cross- Zebra with Maple overlays.
Celtic Knot- Beech with Wenge overlays.
Celtic Clover- Walnut top bottom with Red Oak sides and overlay.
Celtic Trinity- Red Oak top bottom,Walnut sides, Wenge overlay.

Some are simple designs and others a little more complex but all are fun to make. I was born an American but I do enjoy my Irish heritage.

Thanks for looking. John

Thanks guys. The tops are loose fitting with a thin locator glued to the bottom that fits inside the box.
