Approx. Outside Box Size: 14in Wide 8in Deep 8in Tall
This box started as a disaster, so the box I was intending to make out of this I had to re-due.
The wood was cut too short for my normal style of box so I made a different style with a intricately inlayed top.
This box is made of monkey pod, with the top inlayed with a hummingbird and some daises.
The bird is Macacauba, 1 daisy is Satinwood and the other 2 are Maple and all have Movingui centers. The stems are Quilted Maple and the leaves are Zebrawood.
The top tray has ring bars on the outside edges with a divided center area.
All in All it worked out, it's a nice littel box.

Mahogany Jewelry Box

Approx. Outside Size: 10in Wide 6in Deep 6in Tall
This little thing started out as a learning piece. I wanted to learn how to French polish and apply Flocking. The wood I used was actually some "scrap" and it was not supposed to be anything. Unfortunately or fortunately (depending on how you look at it) it started to look downright pretty and I could not bring myself to tear it apart like I do most of my learning pieces. So there are some defects in the finish (French polishing is a challenge) and the flocking is a little thin in some places but all in all the dang thing looks pretty good so I had to add it the "things I've made" list.
My wife commandeered it for herself so I guess I did something right.

This box is made of Knotty Alder with her grandsons name engraved in the front panel.
The lid is equipped with Torsion supports so that the top will not close on him.
It's finished in a tunge oil mix that gives the wood that warm glow or as I say shiny but not shiny.
She too was looking for something that her grandson could use throughout his life and as she said be something of an heirloom.
I hope it meets her expectations.

The body is Black Cherry with Black Walnut accents, the Wolf insert is dyed Maple.
I was asked to make an Urn for a very special man, He was a friend and a man that was loved and respected by many. Once you met him you would never forget him whether or not you liked him you still would not forget him he was that dynamic.

He loved the Native American beliefs and the Wolf was his spirt animal, in fact many knew him by Wolftracks. The Wolf on the front is to commemorate that and is 3D cut in maple then dyed to add accents to it.
He loved the Patriot Guard Riders, he help to start the chapter in Arizona, and is commemorated with a laser engraving of their logo on the left side.
He was proud of his service in VietNam and that is commemorated with a laser engraved waving flag and inlayed brass medallion on the right side.
The eagle and Flag on top was to help show the patriotism that he had.
He was an Amazing man, he will be truly missed.

Approx. Outside Size: 8 1/2in Wide 6 1/2in Deep 9 1/2in Tall
A family friend who had recently lost her father in-law ask that I make an urn for them, she was not happy with what she saw at the funeral home. Another request was that it would endure
I made it out of Ipe which is a wood I have not used before, unfortunately as you can see from the pictures I had some chip out during cutting the joints and no matter what I did I could not make the fill truly match this unique wood. Ipe is probably one of the most resilient woods around and using brass hardware to reinforce, it should stand the test of time.
It is finished in an oil finish and with a lacquer topcoat separated by seal coat. It does look nice except for my mess up, sorry there is not enough time to make another.
