Grab your harpoon and call me Ishmael. Well, maybe not a harpoon, but your copy of Moby Dick and buy this marquetry box featuring a gray sperm whale. This box is constructed from red oak, white tiger oak and the whale is dyed gray veneer. Frame is joined with dovetails. This whale box features surface mounted brass hinges.

Sperm whales are mammals that belong the order Cetacea. They can grow up to 65'. Known to grow as large as 85'. Hunted to near extinction.

I cut out this marquetry by hand. The eye is actually a small knot cut from the same piece of wood. This box was finished with danish oil and hand rubbed with bee's wax

This is the perfect gift for the nature lover.

Box measures 9 x 5 x 3 1/4 tall.

This box was designed and handmade by me in my shop in Frederick, Maryland and completed on 8/29/16.
