I made this little experiment by laminating 1/8” thick sycamore to 3/8” walnut. My thought was that routing the assembled box would reveal some of the walnut, creating an interesting visual effect. Dimensions are roughly 4.5” x 6.5” x 3.5” high. Finish is BLO, buffed out on the three wheel system.
Now for the quiz:
The horizontal inlay on the front of the box is more than just decorative. A free box of sawdust to the first lumberjock who can correctly identify its true function.
