I called this the “Mystery Box” for the simple reason that I have no idea what kind of wood it is. My best guess is cocobolo. I’m not real familiar with too many species of wood. I bought a box of exotic cutoffs from Rockler and received this chunk of wood in it. I didn’t want to do too much to it, so I just squared it, rounded it off a bit and bored it out. The handle is black walnut, which I got from the hardwood cutoffs from Rockler too. Finished with oil and wax. I know many of you know what kind of wood it is and I would love to know. Any comments and suggestions are appreciated.
