Just finished my first project using Birch. I stop by Pekin Hardwoods a few times each week to see whats new and show the guys my latest project. They know I am a sucker for any wood that has nice figure. They recently got some Flame Birch in and knew I would bite and of course I did. I usually build smaller boxes but had wanted to build a few small chests so I thought that would be a good use for this wood. Pretty straight forward design, nothing tricky or special. Used Padauk and Wenge for the inlay on the top. I am pleased with the result and will likely use the chest to store some of my more special stuff.
