I think I'll call it "Patches"

Wasn't in the mood one rainy day to drive all the way to my wood store. So I looked around me in my little shed and saw all manner of different wood scraps, offcuts, and leftover bits and pieces from previous projects and thought, "Why not?" One week later, a parquetry- style box consisting of oak, walnut, pine, yew, purpleheart, sycamore, ash, utili, wenge. The corner pillars are mahogany-stained pine. I don't think the technique would transfer very well to a bureau or wardrobe, though! Instant headache.

I like it! Throw some weird angles into the design and you could call it "Crazy Quilt!"
That said, I guess we just modified the standards for which scraps get tossed/burned.

I never thought of it that way - but you're right! At least you can't say it isn't unique.

I am married to a quilter. I know these things.
You would be amazed at the number of quilt themed products that are targeted to quilters. Everything from greeting cards to endless decorator types of items with quilting themes.

I like it too! I've done a couple projects with multiple woods, and I enjoy the variety in the process and the finished product. Always makes me wonder why people want to stain wood, when there's so much color and variation within the wood itself! Nice box, anyway, Andy (Sorry if this posts twice...)

IK don't normally stain either. Only the corner pillars are stained because I don't do turning and it's not easy finding dark hardwood dowels around here. The rest is Danish oil.

Really nice looking box!
