Hello everyone and Happy New Year. I made these as Xmas presents for my cousin and brother who are my hunting partners. The plans are from “http://customsawing.com”. The build up was fairly straight forward. The first is tiger maple and mahogany. The second is mostly mahogany, with the end blocks being scrap pieces of white oak. I scroll sawed the turkey tracks from walnut. The hardware came from the Depot. Nothing special brass wood screws and little springs. I finished both with several coats of arm r seal. Minus the bottom of the lid. I wasn’t sure how it would affect sound quality. As for sound quality. I am very pleasantly surprised. I fully went into it thinking it would be a decorative piece. They sound so good that I am expecting them to go afield. The all mahogany box measures 6” the maple box is 7” the mahogany one sounds a touch better. One thing I was surprised with is the difference in sound quality that the side grooves made. I am planning 2 more one for myself. Thank you and once again happy new year.
