Autumn Leaves in Honduran Rosewood
Quiltboxes wood art pieces feature traditional quilt block designs executed in beautiful hardwood marquetry. I create these heirloom quality boxes in my studio in the capital region of Upstate New York.
This pattern is called Autumn Leaves, but it is a year-round favorite. The marquetry inlay design is made from Honduran Rosewood and a dense Birdseye Maple.
The inside is natural cherry wood with a black velvet bottom, and black felt on the outside bottom. The box dimensions are 5"x5"x5", and it has a lift-off top. A small registration “button” inside orients the lid so the grain and figure in the wood are aligned across the opening of the box.
