Another one of the 6 ‘first batch’ dovetail boxes. This one is the first of 2 boxes with a sliding top. All wood is Thai Padoo with a sprayed urethane finish. Rounded off the dovetails on the RT to soften the profile.

Thanks for looking and a Happy NY to one and all LJ’ers.

Good looking box. I like the grain on top.

I’ve never heard of Padoo, but it’s beautiful and you’ve made the most of it.

Douglas, your dovetails look great. I love the grain/color of this wood. Like David, I’ve never heard of it before, but man it is sweet looking.

Thanks for posting it.
