Kevin was recently commissioned to make a keepsake box out of Brazilian Rosewood and Brazilian Rosewood Burl. He was provided with a very small sampling of each wood from a decades old inventory.
When I first saw this material I thought he was getting in way over his head. Although the Brazilian Rosewood looked normal enough, the burl was exceptionally thick since it came from resawn stock. I was concerned that the thickness variations would result in unanticipated twisting or warping.
But Kevin was undaunted, and the net result of his efforts are shown here.
Quite frankly, he did an outstanding job under very trying circumstances.
Overall dimensions are 12-1/4" wide x 8-1/8" deep x 4-1/8" high.
