BRANDY

This box I named BRANDY because of the beautiful colour the cherry turned when I put on the finish.
This is a box that I had no idea what it would look like and I started with a cherry board and just went from there adding aspen and walnut for contrast just let the design evolve as I tried different ideas and in the end I think I got a beautiful box that will make a nice gift .
The box contains cherry ,aspen and walnut and is fitted with solid brass hinges the liners are made from heavy upholstery cloth .
The size is 12” X 6” X 4” and even so it does not conform to the golden rule it has a very balanced look .
The finish is oil and bees wax .
Hope you like it .

Beautiful box and very creative. Once I tried making a box with lines in it and was told it looked like a sandwich. That was a great inspiration. Nothing nearly as nice as yours.
