December, 2009 – The contrasting woods made this box interesting. The center is pine, and the two thin layers are aspen. The dark wood is a hard wood purchased from the scrap pile at a lumber yard in St. Petersburg (Florida). Each draw is cut so that it has a divider, and so there are 4 compartments total. The bottom of each compartment is lined with felt. The knobs are an orange colored hard wood from the scraps of an earlier band saw box project. On this box I sanded to 600, applied one coat of Watco Danish Oil, sanded with 1200, and applied a second coat of Danish Oil. The oil really brings out the character in the wood. This is a heavy piece. Based on the general look and feel of it, my wife decided this one was for a man to use. Maybe it’s the racing stripe look.
