A marquetry card box that I made as a gift for someone. I was going to make a simple card box but got a little carried away while I was working on it.
I have become a little addicted to these specialty playing cards that are being made recently, this Alice in Wonderland themed card deck by @kingswildproject and artist Jackson Robinson, @lordoftheringsplayingcards
Inspired me to do the Cheshire Cat in marquetry on a burl background. Boxwood banding on all the edges, the corners all come to a double miter.
The drawer box is dovetailed and lined with a baby blue water silk fabric, which reminds me of Alice’s dress. I have a couple more card decks to make boxes for, just have to think up some ideas now.
