Rose Jewelry Box

Filed under: Wood Projects — Glenn @ 4:36 pm

dsc00197Rose form jewelry box, made of Imbuia hardwood. The wood was generously donated to me and hand carried to Canada from Brazil, by my good friend Mike Plante.

dsc001981Box measures 8x6x3″ tall and is finished with Oil Varnish. The top is an intarsia cut rose petal, stem and leaf design.

dsc00196Imbuia is VERY dense and difficult to work, I must have gone through 4 scroll saw blades during the project; power sanding is a must as well.  The wood has tremendous figure, and is definitely worth the effort.
