Exotic Padauk Box: A Gorgeous Fine Woods Keepsake Box by Master Craftsman Michael Papa
A number of beautiful handmade boxes were donated by local master craftsman Michael Papa to benefit the children receiving treatment at the Lucille Packard Children’s Hospital. You will see the quality craftsmanship and design and feel the warmth, luster and beauty of the wood when you hold one of these treasures in your hand.
The rich purple-brown of exotic padauk wood from Africa compliments the maple front and back of this exquisite piece. The padauk set-in top is accented by an ebony handle set over a circular opening. Open the lid to see the wavy grain of curly maple on the bottom. An inlaid circle of ebony in the front maple piece echoes the lid design. Padauk edging on the front and back beautifully sets off the maple. A stunning mix of natural wood colors.
