I can’t believe I didn’t post this sooner. So life goes…
I made this as a wedding gift for a couple of my friends. It’s made of Figured Narra, also known as Amboyna when it’s in burl form. It’s based on the same principle of construction as described here.
I learned this technique firsthand from Scott Phillips when he spent a day at my hardwood dealer. I was in the front row, no more than an arms reach away from him most of the time!!! What a great guy!
This box was really special, because it turned into FOUR NESTING BOXES!! I initially meant this box to be a recipe holder for the newlyweds, but I just couldn’t stop making boxes once I started…
The inside of each box and all the inner boxes are finished with Zinsser Seal Coat shellac and the outside box is finished with Seal Coat followed by a coat of Satin wipe-on Poly (Minwax).
