BLACK WALNUT DIAMOND BOX W/ HIDDEN CAPTURED MARBLE
- 19.25" Length x 11.25 Width x 4.5" High
- Having rescued this handsome Walnut timber from a fallen tree in Augusta County VA, I band-sawed the large diamond shape for drying.
- After drying over two years, I "trued" the diamond shape at the band-saw and sculpted the elegant wings at 2000 rpm.
- I then shaped the raised center dome and hollowed out the interior box with an undercut rim, all sanded to a very smooth surface.
- Hidden under the Pagoda style lid I carefully captured a colorful marble with tolerances that allow the marble to rotate and spin.
- The beautiful marble was made by glass artist Phillip Nolley.
- Finished with 100% organic TY Oil and wax buffed.
