This was another pallet find. Two planks of dark red colored wood in with some pine. I pulled them out and jointed them. There wasnt much wood left after i cut out the split ends and nail holes. Enough for these two little boxes. What fascinated me was that the wood smelled like walnut when cut, worked like walnut and is grained like walnut. Except it looks like aged cherry but nicer. Does anyone have any idea of what it may be? Because I want more. Its really beautifull, warm, rich dark red.
The third (square) little box is from off-cut laminations. I made them all at the same time. Lids are Zebra. Splines are maple and walnut. Lifters are also from off-cut laminations (I hate trowing wood away). Finished with Danish Oil, poly and waxed.
