It’s amazing what happens to a tree during it’s life. The box is a birthday gift for our daughter-in-law, which she loved.
A 1.5”X16”X38” unique piece of curly maple was given to me by a woodworking buddy who found it in a scrap pile at a saw mill. After resawing it into .75” usable slabs and then planed to .5”, this is the results. The maple is outlined with padauk, at least I think it is (gotten from same buddy). Side note, my shop will never be the same after working with the red wood. I applied 3 coats of water base poly and several applications of wax.
Plans were from Woodstore .net.
