I’be been working my padauk and thinking of what I’d like to do with it. I thought maybe a wall hanging of some sort, but the more I look at it now that I’ve framed it in walnut, I’m thinking box lid. Maybe an oak and walnut box lined with cedar.

Forgive the miters, they suck, but the padauk was just a bit not square. I was feeling adventuresome so I compensated with the walnut but during the glue up I think I got a couple sides mixed or turned upside down. Anyway, I plan to fix those with a piece of oak shaped like a wedge in place of the walnut mitered corners.

The only problem with an oak and walnut box is the weight. It’s all 4/4 lumber and I ain’t resawing it.

Here is the lid so far.

I like the contrast of the walnut and Padauk. Never mind the apology for the miters, mine are no better at times : ) Look forward to seeing the finished product!

Hoosier0311- I’ve decided to make another chest and use this for the lid. The chest will be made of a walnut base, red oak, walnut, and padouk panels. I’m going to do simple butt joinery or maybe miters and decorative dowels on the front with some contrasting wood.
