This is a two-fisted lift-lid box made of dramatically colored mango. The bookmatched mango lid is framed with a vintage koa frame exhibiting bird's-eye and curly figure and has milo trim. The mango's wild open grain is characteristic of wood found just under the bark of the tree. This material is usually damaged by insect activity or mangled as the tree is felled and milled, but if it survives it often contains a rainbow of color as seen here. the size and shape of a box is usually determined by what pieces of wood are available - this box is about 6" x 13" and is quite solid. The lid lifts off and fits both ways (all my boxes have this feature). Lined with aromatic cedar, signed and dated, finished with color-matched Ultrasuede.
