This is an open box, made specifically to hold large utensils. Made from curly hickory with cherry keys. Currently only oiled with walnut oil, but once it’s cured out some, it will have a wipe-on poly finish.

Thank you! Randy made the jig he used for the splines. The jig looks like the one pictured in this article:
