I built this Ribbon Box in the Summer of 2013. It was used as a wedding gift for a wedding in France. It is made of walnut solids, book matched walnut crotch grain, Tulipwood and Pink Ivory. It is approx. 11 by 13 by 6 high. The ribbons are produced using a combination of glue up, scroll saw using templates, stacked glueup one at a time and lots of tlc sanding. I even built a custom made cardboard box to ship it out of country safely. It is finished with 2 coats of minwax wipe on poly and 2 coats of sprayed satin polyurethane. All colors are natural of course.
