50th Anniversary Box

I created this 50th anniversary box as a gift.  The intent for the box was to keep 50 stories and memories that the family gave them as part of the gift for their celebration.   The base wood was poplar which was mitered and splined for strength.  The box was then veneered with fiddleback sycamore and trimmed with wenge.   The inlay was pure white holly.     The box was finished with shellac which was french polished and finally waxed.
