Mariner's Star in Burl Walnut
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 7” Mariner’s Star quilt pattern keepsake box has figured Walnut on its background and sides. The 3D illusion star pattern uses Karelian Burl as the light wood with Honduran Rosewood.
The inside of the box is cherry with cherry lid liners and a velvet bottom. The hinges and knob are solid brass. It measures 7” square and 4” tall with black felt on the outside bottom.
