I have a box full of Padauk pieces about 10” long and 1 1/2” square. I took two of them and laminated them together in order to make a small box.
I really didn’t intend to make a “watch box” but function followed form on this one. When I got done it looked like it was just about perfect to place a watch or two in.
The overall size of this one is 9” wide, 1 1/2 tall, 3” deep. The drawer is flocked with wine fibers and the pull is a blued steel. Three coats of thinned poly gave it a great shine. I think that even as the Padauk browns it will be a great piece.
Flaws: I should have taken a little more time matching the pieces. As you can see there is a distinctive demarcation in color along the top. I thought they would sand down to the same color. I was wrong.
