This box is made from a pretty good list of woods. Sapele, birds eye maple, maple, ash, cherry, and african black wood. Sapele for the main box. Birds eye maple veneer for the lid and maple for the pull. Ash and the black wood for the banding around the birds eye and the splines. Cherry for the runners and small tray inside. Ooops almost forgot I used some 1/4” mahogany ply for the bottom.
I got one of those large pizza box variety packs of veneers from lee valley and the birds eye maple was in it. It inspired my design. This was my first time ever veneering and with 50 sq ft of veneer to play with I will be doing a lot more in the future. The finish is boiled linseed oil and 4 coats of spray lacquer. I love the way the grain pattern moves in the light with both the sapele and the birds eye maple. I can see me using this combination of woods again.
Thanks for checking out my project.
