Hi all
I've been keen to work with coloured veneer for some time now so I finally got round to it.
The lid is inspired by the work of an artist called Chidi Okoye, not sure who the flower is by.
The main veneer is a dark grey birdseye maple and the colours are poplar, the inside is maple.
It is finished with a satin acrylic lacquer.

C+C's welcome.

Cheers
Paul

I like that - someone is going to be very pleased with it
I hope you like my son's caricature of me! If you want one of you - PM me.
