Curved Checkerboard Box

Curved Checkerboard Box

After making many ‘rectangular’ shaped boxes I wanted to try something different. In this box, I combined a geometric pattern with an organic shape. The box is made from 42 Peruvian black walnut and maple blocks.
The box is approximately 3” x 3” x 2 ½”



You certainly did a fantastic job on what appears to be a very difficult . . . and tiny box. Thanks for sharing.

Splendid box, Roger, lovely shape. The difficult is always satisfying to overcome and you must be really satisfied with this project.


Nice! Very interesting. I really like the shape.

A real beauty Roger. Simple but elegant and very nice craftsmanship as well.
