This is a first attempt at curvy work after the addition of a bandsaw (Taiwanese Delta 14”) to the arsenal. Cherry, Walnut, Wenge and Maple. The maple inlays on the interior of the lid are, well, not really inlay but shims after cutting too much off, as in ”I cut this piece of wood twice and it’s still too short”. Lining is spanish cedar. The top has a curved inlay of wenge, and about 12 coats of Pratt & Lambert #38.
The end panels are air dried walnut burl, from the same hunk I used to make the top of one of my clocks.
In response to something ScottB said about making a “Cigar Pen” box, here is a Incense box that smells on it’s own. ;^D
