Boxwood Box

An ornamental box made from lightly spalted boxwood. It is 70mm tall and 70mm in diameter. The basket pattern around the outside was made with a 3mm wide cutter. The joint between the lid and base is 3 patterns down from the top. The same 18 bump rosette was used for the lid but the cutter this time was a universal cutting frame rather than the drilling frame for the side. The inside of the lid and the base also have patterns on them. The lid is adorned with a 5mm red cubic zirconia. The box is finished with 3 coats of acrylic gloss lacquer.
