I made this box after a friend suggested I put a tray in a bigger box I had made. My first use of Zebrawood. I used Sassafras for part of the top and all of the bottom. The Zebrawood is bordered by a thin strip of Padauk.
The miter keys are also Padauk. The tray has a Sassafras bottom and Imbuia sides.

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and now time to work!!!

Looks great, Iv never used Sassafras before. Does it still have the strong odor after it drys ?
