Body is walnut, “medallion” is quilted maple, and the handle is bloodwood. Splines are maple and bloodwood.
I pretty much followed Andy’s instructions the whole way, the only variation I added was the vertical splines that show on the top of the box. Definitely a learning experience, I got a little crazy with the shaping and had to replace the original bloodwood handle after I carved into the spline that was holding it on. But the new one came out pretty good.
Finish is BLO and a whole bunch of semi-gloss lacquer….
