This one’s made with Butternut, which I understand is in the walnut family. The dark wood is walnut. Birch buttons. The butternut is veneered onto LuAnn plywood for the box. The bent walnut strips are thin strips glued together with plastic resin glue and molded with a 2×6 form to get the bent shape. This one is being donated for a silent auction for a local humane society fundraiser.

I can only imagine how tedious it was to attach all those buttons. Looks great.

Randal this looks fantastic. Another great choice in wood selection. That butternut has some incredible grain/color.

Thanks for posting it.
