Pretty new to woodworking, but I’ve managed to find a nice hardwood supplier that isn’t too far from my shop. Being a rookie, I found some nice bright colorful wood (without knowing much about) to make a box. Everything was done on a table saw. Pretty happy with the results for a first go at something “nice” without using plywood or pine.
Finish just a Danish oil wiped on and let dry a few days. I learned that Padask a pretty soft wood and that made it a challenge to not destroy the leg pieces when I was cleaning up the slots via chisel. Also Purple heart is very two-faced and really does turn from Purple back to brown when it is planed / sanded / cut whatever.
Any criticism is welcomed. =]
