A domed top keepsake box of spalted maple veneer over ash with ebony trim and accents.
The box top is hinged with my custom designed, hand-made bras hinges.
This box incorporates a particularly beautiful piece of spalted maple that was painstakingly cut to yield the most pleasing patterns.
Note that the backside looks like an old chart of Florida and Gulf of Mexico.
The finish on this box is satin acrylic; bottom lining is red velvet.
* Spalted maple is maple that has been invaded by fungi and, as such is very weak. Therefore, this box is veneered over ash and unspalted maple.
