this was a quick 1 day project to get my hands back on the wood after a much,much too long of a hiatus.Its far from perfect. I had to match the size of the sandstone piece, which isn’t even an exact rectangle. I took more pics that were much too dark to show the bottom. the legs and bottom of box are made with Alder, the box sides are Myrtle. The Sandstone is framed with Myrtle(epoxied) and has a small lip to fit the box. My box plans are just looking at a piece of wood and and then start cutting…See where it goes from there. The Sandstone is very translucent and glows nicely when held up to the light.I rubbed a bit of lemon oil on the top make it pop a bit for the pic, final finish is not done yet.
