Very soon after I started woodworking 2 years ago, I started hoarding any free wood i could get my hands on. I found this cherry in a firewood pile and split some sections hoping it might be nice. It sat in my garage for over a year until i ran it through the bandsaw. When I saw the book matched grain i knew it had to be a candle style box so the lid could slide out and the “Dagger” in the grain was coming right at you. The figure all over is a nice bonus.
Solid cherry. Bottom, sides, and top all from the same log. Tung oil finish. Shaker style candle box inspiration.
Thanks for taking the time to look!
