My wife asked me to build her a box to store all of her knitting needles and various knitting paraphernalia. At first I was not interested but later changed my mind and went to work on designs. I came up with this design on google Sketchup which you can find in my blog if you want to see it. Working with zebrawood is a unique experience that I would recommend to anyone wanting to broaden their woodworking skills. The grain is really difficult and hard to get smooth. This project was about 30 hours or so from design to finish. This was not all at once but over time. All dovetails were cut by hand and I used a satin wipe on poly from general finishes. She really likes it and that is what matters.
