+This is a box made as a wedding gift for a friends son. The dark wood was given to me by a friend who did some planing for a customer, and recieved it as payment. When he asked what it was, he was told “Junkro”. He also gave me a piece of Posion wood.
The body of the box is curly soft maple, and the bottom is lined with black suede. The top was a 7/8 thick, so I tried to resaw it. I got a little off and the piece I planned on using for the bottom was just under 1/8 after I flattened it with the drum sander. I thought that it might be too thin, so I laminated it to some plywood before putting it in the bottom.
The inside trays are of walnut, with a natural knot hole used as a finger hole.
Finished with Tung oil and wax.
I had not made anything for twenty years until I took over the garage last year and started to get back to hobby woodworking. It feels good! Questions or comments welcome.
Thanks for looking, Nick
