A few years ago I made a trip to China. It was a fantastic journey and gave me a chance to experience a culture that is thousands of years old. During that trip I also bought two pieces of jade that I worked into two boxes I called "The Emperor's Jade."

Since that trip I've been longing to get some more jade pieces that I could work into similar boxes, because the Asian Imperial feel of the boxes was so handsome. Well, I've finally secured some more pieces of jade and I'm thrilled to be able to make "The Emperor's Jade" again!

This band saw box is made out of Pennsylvania Cherry wood with exotic Purpleheart accents for the drawer pulls. What is particularly special about this box design is that the top compartment is not a drawer, but instead, is a large storage section built into the box itself with a hinged lid.

The Jade pendant is inlaid into the face of the box. It is a very deep green color. Carved into the center of the pendant is the Chinese character for Good Fortune with an intricate design around the borders.

This unique piece measures just short of 6" tall, is about 7 1/4" wide and 3 3/4" deep.

Each drawer in the box as well as the hinged storage in the top is lined with a plush ruby red flocking.

The Emperor's Jade Good Fortune band saw box is finished with 2 coats of tung oil to bring out the rich grain in both the Cherry and Purpleheart wood. There are no dyes or stains on the wood, these are the wood's natural colors. I have also added a top coat of finish wax and buffed it so the wood positively glows.
