A few months ago the Wood Whisperer site featured a box build with Gary Rogowski. Here is my version in two Thai hardwoods, makha and deng. The bottom is covered with handmade mulberry leaf paper. Finish is Osmo Poly X.

that looks great, what did you use to pin the ends? Are those dowels or brass pins?

The pins are bamboo bbq skewers, just the right size.

Have to love that.
Thanks for sharing.


-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.
