In process box. finished pictures in a few day I hope if I get time to finish it out.
Cherry with Butternut opposing grain inlays.
Recessed bottom floor that will be lined with Velvet.
Inlay carries through to the inside of the Lid. I see this box being hinged and a huge part of your desk.
Bottom of the box has machined in feet and relieved oval pocket to help keep box true and strait.
This one will be a looker when done. I have plans to make quite a few like this with many different exotic species of wood. I have some really nice lumber right now.
If you have some thoughts on what would make the perfect one for you please let me know.
