This box is a custom order from a customer, its made from goncalo alves wood (aka tiger wood) with bubinga for the handles and the miter splines. Its a box for toiletry items it measures 10” by 16” and is 5” tall.
The wood didnt have much black streaks like goncalo alves usually does but still really nice looking wood. Ive never used this type of wood untill now and i dont like it. It looks good but its very splintery and highly prone to chipping out during machining. Surprisingly it did good with a handplane but thats about it. This box is finished with gloss polyurethane.
