I have been saving this piece of Myrtlewood for the right project and a Wing Box seemed to have the right proportions. I added accent strips to add detail and to fatten it up a little.
Lid is Myrtlewood with Maple, Bubinga, Madrone of two colors and Wenge strips
Body is Madrone
Feet are Bubinga
Handles are Wenge and Paduak
Bottom rail is Wenge
Divider is Oregon quilted Maple with a live edge Paduak strips
I made my own 1/8” Paduak dowels to cover the brass hinge pins and for accent.
Lacquer finish semi-gloss
The double handles were a real pain but I am happy with the results.
The base took almost as long to build as the body…whew!.. but dresses it up nicely.
Thanks for looking.
