This is my second project in wood. My first project was a small walnut box to hold a set of custom engraved dominos. This project was for a friend, and is 42W x 22L x 24H. It is constructed of Black Walnut and Mahogany. The inlay material is red oak, walnut, and ash. The Mahogany was aged with potassium chromate, and the entire box was finished with tung oil (5 coats) . The project took about 3 months of my spare time.

I think I like wood! It’s very earthy.
