    Here are a few photos of my newest custom box.
    Made from antique mahogany it measures 8” x 12” x 4”.
    The Intarsia lid has 36 pieces made from 6 different woods.The design was taken from a tattoo sent to me by my client.
    Woods used: Dark Background-Peruvian Walnut, Light Background-Tiger Maple, Lily-Purpleheart, Vines-Palo Santos, Flower Filaments-Yellowheart, Flower Anthers-Brazilian Tulipwood. Fun project
