    Belated Xmas Gift Box

    I made this little box to hold a couple of gift cards I'm giving my Mom.

    Its about 3 X 4˝ inches, and about an inch deep. Curly Maple and Bloodwood. Finish is several coats of rattle can lacquer.

    Attractive, both in design and the selection of wood.

    Thankyou for posting pictures.

    Wonderful job Jim! The woods compliment each other well.

    I've really never noticed any odor to bloodwood - not like cherry, cedar, or hickory, etc.

    As for color, it'll mellow out a bit - darken to more of a maroon - but will pretty much keep that dark richness.
