    Custom Box ( A work in Progress)

    Hi Everyone
    Here are the photos of the finished Custom Intarsia Box project I've been working on. This was a fun project with lots of challenging cutting. Ended up with 104 pieces from 9 different woods.

    Beautiful. I doubt if there are very many woodworkers that would have the nerve to even start on something like that.

    Those should be "forever" treasures; real hand-me-downs.

    Enjoy,

    Amazing work you do Mike takes my breath away. If the client aint totally delighted send it my way I will give it a good home. Can you do this immigrant Canadian a favor and enlighten me on the other two flags, i recognize the one with the stars it fits my rebellious temperament, but don't know the other two. Need to brush up on my history. And that era is one of particular interest to me. I am going to guess one on the extreme left is a naval ensign am i even luke warm?
    cheers

    Thanks for the comments guys
    To Rob-The flag on the left is the THIRD NATIONAL-adopted in 1865.
    The center flag is the BONNIE BLUE or LONE STAR adopted in 1810.
    The flag on the right is the Army of Tennessee Battle flag adopted in 1864.

    Thank you Mike now i know where to start my bit of history research. I must say your client sure has me curious and fascinated as to why they would want those on a box. There must be a great story there.
    cheers
