This is a box made from Zebrawood, Bolivian Rosewood,Spalted Maple, oak plywood, figured maple, the zebrawood is used for the top& front, bolivian rosewood for the back& sides. I used box joints for the corner joinery, after the box carcus was glued up i cut the lid using a 1/4” router bit on my router table, the pull out drawer front is spalted malpe with maple sides & oak plywood bottom, this bolivian rosewood has such a nice grain when finished , i had to take a pic of the figured maple bottom the pic does not bring out the grain as much as holding it in front of you. I used brass knobs & brass pin hinges for the lid , the box joints were made on my router table & i put a molding around the top of the lid & a cove bit for the bottom edge, for the finish i used watco natural danish oil & then a few coats of wipe-on poly & finished with 4-5 coats of minwax, the box was 11 1/2” X 5” X 5” wide, the spalted maple drawer front was really stood out with the pink & black colours running through the wood, & the zebrawood worked well on this box. I enjoyed making this one,thanks for looking.
