This box is over 10 years old now and shows the very organic texturing along the sides that I was developing at that time. The top and underside was highly polished and it sat in a raised ring with its surface lightly engraved. The round, ball feet are in tulipwood (Dalbergia decipularis). Many people are surprised when they see that name. It is a tree from a very small area of Brazil and is not to be confused with American Tulipwood.

It's intriguing to think where it is now.

African blackwood, turned, carved and textured, Tulipwood, turned. Approximately 3.3" diameter, 6" high.
