Quilted maple & Wenge Lift Top Box

Editor's Choice - Aug 28, 2014

I had one of awesome pieces of quilted maple that I rarely ever find here in southern Louisiana.
My first plan was to carve the box but after experimenting on a scrap I realized it would change the beauty of the unique grain. Therefore I decided to just make it a plain and simple flat surface design.
The finish is lacquer.

Although we all know you for extreme fancy, you do plain very well Greg.
Nice box.

Good decision on leaving the grain alone.
Quite nice combo.

Thanks…my sculpted boxes and work are definitely my favorite to make but sometimes a change of design is a breath of fresh air…somewhat like taking a break…However, It is all fun and all woodworking…we do it because we enjoy it.
