This is my first box. It is made from reclaimed Western Larch or Tamarack.
Wow is this stuff hard. I couldn’t believe how hard and brittle it is.
I rough sanded the boards before cutting the dovetails, then sanded a bit more with 120 grit. Then I just soaked it with BLO until it wouldn’t take any more. 3 coats of poly sanding in between and this is the finished product. It’s about 5”X5”X15”.
