Zebrawood Stash Box... One of my boys gave me a piece of zebrawood for Christmas….trouble was, it wasn’t very big…...about 5/16 thick and 4 1/2 by 20 inches. After some careful planning and cutting, this is the result. The box measures approx. 4×6 and is just a tad over 2 inches high. The mitered corners are reenforced with walnut splines and the bottom is dadoed into the sides. The lid is hinged with hidden pins and topped off with a pair of my signature carved leaves.
The leaves are a three piece glue-up with a center walnut vein, and the grain of the zebrawood oriented at 45 degrees to the vein. After the glue has dried, I cut out the leaves on the band saw and contour the top with my Dremel. The front leaf acts as a lift and lid stop.
The scrap of wood in the fourth picture is all that was left over.
The box is lined with leather and finished with satin poly.
