"DIAMONDS" dimensions 8 1/2 x 8 1/2 
The woods are: The sides: tamo. The top is a combination of tamo, Brazilian rosewood, Indian rosewood, teak, koa, African cherry, holly, benin (but not necessarily in that order!)

This one is called "THE FIVE BOX" for rather obvious reasons.  And one that is a nightmare to make. Getting the central box perfect is next to impossible. It appears in Tony Lydgate's book "The Art of Making Elegant Jewelry Boxes". The dimensions are 9 x 9 (each corner box is 3 x 3) and the woods are macassar ebony, benin and English brown oak.

"FRANK" (after Frank Lloyd Wright) dimensions 8 x 8 and is my homage to him and the design he created for a concrete block in the Ennis house in southern California. The woods are: imbuya, holly, movingui, Indian rosewood, teak, macassar ebony, sycamore, primavera and avodire.

"TURKISH KNOT" dimensions 4 x 11. 
This design I "borrowed" from the ceiling of a mosque in Konya, Turkey, the home of the world famous Whirling Dervishes.  The woods are redwood burl and holly.
