Commissioned watch box which I was given full liberty in design and wood selection. This box has 15 different woods used to create a artistic work which has a "Old Word/Black Forest" feel. A type of work which would have been presented to a emperor in past time. Inlayed green abalone and mother of pearl are also incorporated. Crushed pearl in ebony artwork of a great horned owl "the watch guardian" resides on the interior of the lid. The box has the best hardware made and is completely lockable. Figured woods include quilted big leaf maple, Hawaiian Koa and Mango, claro walnut, bocote and mahogany. The trees which anchor the 4 corners were hand carved from claro walnut.
