I made this for my sis-in-law in Florida, who we haven’t seen in years. Just a small box that can be used for any occasion or purpose. We will be visiting them near the end of the month and I thought this will be a nice gift.
It’s made from my own Box elder tree we had cut down a couple years ago due to the hazard of falling on the house.
I framed it with some Paudak on top and bottom with a raised panel top. I think the Padauk highlights the box elder nicely so I used Paduak splines also. I can not get over all the different colors in it, pictures are not giving it complete justice.
Approx 11’’ x 6’’ x 4’’. I used Danish oil and lacquer for the finish. Now I just have to finish my brother-in law’s gift.
Thanks for looking.
