I have made two of these boxes with this design. The was actually the first and the Lyptus one that I posted a while back was the second. I really like this design and since it can hold a variety of things people really seem to like it and can’t resist touching and manipulating it.
When I sell my woodwork and Bison Jerky at craft shows I always post a sign, it says “PLEASE TOUCH!!” Like most woodworkers, I think the touch of finished wood is one of the rewards of a job well done.
Zebrawood can be difficult to work with. It’s grain and color is very striking but it does splinter easily and you have to be patient if you want to get a soft finish. This box is about 10” tall, 4” wide, and 4” deep. The opening in the drawer is about 2”x2”.
The brushed pewter pull fit in well with the finish and this drawer opens further than the drawer on the first one. Gettting the drawer fit correct is the hardest part of this design.
Thanks for taking a look.
