A gift box for a custom hunting knife commissioned by a local hunter. He chose butternut because he wanted the box made from an unusual species for this special knife. I was fortunate to have gotten some butternut from McInturf's sawmill the week before.
The Celtic cross and knife maker's logo on the top were carved on a CNC router by Connaghan & Long in Lexington. After they completed their work, I finished the work on the lid and fitted it to the box.
