I do many different projects, with many “unique” design aspects, as I do not like doing a design that I have seen elsewhere. So as a result I have a default button when I do my own work. That is the humble box. It actually is a great way for me to learn more about wood, how it looks and feels, joinery and the like without wasting too much timber if I get it wrong. This box is special to me as I wanted to do a Bog Oak box (which seems to be very rare). However, in this instance, as I was making it, it looked too dark and depressing. So halfway through I looked at incorporating Sycamore into the design. As it turns out I think it worked and it now sits on a family members dresser.
