This box was built as a wedding gift for a very good friend of mine who also happens to be a skilled woodworker. The top has white Orchid marquetry on a black background. The materials used in the construction of the box include Gaboon Ebony, Amboyna and Quilted Maple veneer and solids. There is a small amount of (Pre-Ban) Elephant Ivory which alternates with the Ebony as an accent band around the marquetry panel. All of the Ebony molding was designed and cut by myself and used to give the piece a unique and dramatic appearance. The dimensions of the box are approximately 22″ x 16″ x 8″ high. It is finished in Lacquer.
