This pen/ pencil box is made of solid genuine mahogany and Wenge. The cove was cut on the table saw after the box was glued up and the splines were added. The box measures 4.5”L x 3”W x 4.5”H.

No stains or dyes were used and all colors seen are the natural colors of the wood. Finished with 3 coats of shellac followed by 2 coats of poly.

Here are some other wood combinations

Nice box. Good wood combination and I love the cove. I never would have thought about cutting it after the box was glued up.

Cool idea to cut the cove after gluing up. Nice way to ensure good joints. I imagine that took some creative prep to stay safe…

Great result – it’s got me thinking how I would tackle that.

Very nice design. Just curious, what are the boxes in the center of the picture made from? Blood wood and yellow heart?
