Inlaid Silver Initials Box
This was on of the stranger custom boxes I"ve made. The box is a gift for the client's father, and I'd rather not reveal what it's designed to hold, but it has some interesting features that were some what of a technical challenge to achieve, with the request for very heavily rounded edges, and a no reveal, frame and panel top. Inlaid silver monogram, and beautiful Brusso stainless steel catch on a wenge box.

Custom Inlaid Ring Presentation Box
This box was made in response to the clients request for a
humidor sized box to present a very special ring to his wife,
and to serve

and bubinga inlays. See next frame for interior.

See the enlargement to appreciate the engraved and grain detail of the birds-eye.

Chrysanthemum Inlay Jewelry Box
A very intricate inlay of a stylized flower highlights this customized box. Ebony, holly, satinwood, bloodwood, mape, and pink ivorywood center.
