This is the first realy fancy box I have made.
The top is a bookmatched panel. The wood came from a pallet at work. Only 2 boards looked like this. Was told it is Cherry but have never seen cherry with that kind of feathering. Front and back are from another board on same pallet. Same feathering but not as pronounced.
The sides and bottom are from a crate of windshields that came from Indonisia. They look like cherry.
Bookmatched the bottom. Left all the knots in it as my wife specifically wanted those. ( she likes stuff to have a LOT of carrector, Probably why she married me ). Total of 15 knots in this peice. She is happy.
Used Walnut from another pallet for the corner trim and legs.
Had to plane and re-saw all the boards. Getting better at keeping that hand held planer level, but still practicing.
Did get to try out new Router table I built. Works good.
Total of about 28 hours in this. One of the longest projects I’ve ever done. ( My Murphy bed was about 72 hours )
Have put 1 coat of Wipe on Poly on so far. Planing on more with 1200 grit in between coats.
Would appreciate all comments and critiques. You can’t hurt my feelings I know I need to improve.
Sory. Forgot to put in the size.
