Bear Paws In Walnut
This is the traditional quilt pattern called Bear Paws. When wrapped around this box, you see a secondary pattern at the corners that looks like a teddy bear's face. On a shelf or table, you can see the pattern from any direction.
This 5" cube with a lift-off lid is veneered with a rich Stump Walnut, and the paws are Tamo (Japanese Ash). The inside is Cherry with a black velvet interior bottom, and black felt on the outside base.
A small registration “button” orients the top so the grain and figure in the wood stay aligned when you close the box.
