The woods used for this box are lacewood for the top & front 3/4” thick, black ash for the back 3/4” thick, padauk for the sides 1/2” thick & maple 1/4” thick for the bottom, & the tray was 1/4” thick popular. I was just amazed at how the lacewood looks when finish is put on, another wood I have worked with & looks very nice is sycamore. The side view you can see the padauk showing the ” E-Z link dovetail joinery ” made with my router & special fixture, also the windup sticking out the side, the back view shows the black ash & i mounted the but hinges on the outside, i found that the black ash was similar looking to red oak but not as heavy, i had some small pieces of 1/4” popular & used it to make a tray. You can’t see the bottom but i put brass feet under from Lee Valley also the brass knobs & brass chain & mirror. I used natural danish oil inside & out ,then shellac for the inside & several coats of clear poly on the outside & ended with minwax on the outside .hope you enjoy, john.
