This box is made from Gerronggang and Red Gum. It’s not sure if its a box or a cupboard!!
Gerronggang is a hardwood from the swamps of Indonesia and Malaysia. It saws, routs and finishes well, but planing is a bit of a pain. I use a Lie Nielson No. 4 with a high angle frog to give a “York pitch”
The lid panels and the base are all bookmatched. The lid panels come from the same Red Gum board. (sequential cuts.)
The inllays are Red Gum and could have made a little cleaner. Finish is Scandinavian Oil friction sealed by ROS to 4000g.
