Walnut Wave Box with Quilted Maple Top
A precious little box, it has sides of glued bent laminations of walnut and maple, finger joined together, and the quilted maple top and red cedar bottom float in grooves to allow seasonal dimensional changes. The smooth shellac polish finish is exquisite! On the bottom, it carries the burned in stamp of the maker.
This piece should need only dusting and an occasional coat of wax on the shellaced surfaces, if desired. As with any fine furniture, avoid contact with liquids.
