This was my first project with bloodwood and I very much appreciate how the wood looks when the box is finished. Unfortunately, I didn’t look at the wood hardness chart before I started. Had I looked and seen that it had a hardness of 3300 I would have used it for another project that didn’t require so much hand sanding. The box is only 9 1/2” x 4 3/4” x 4”, but that enough for me. It was also only my second bandsaw box. The drawer fronts are birdseye maple and I lined the drawers with felt. The finish is seven coats of General Finishes Wood Turners Finish.
