I made this accessory box for my wife by slicing 1/4 inch strips from a piece of Poplar and then gluing them together, edge to edge. I lined the inside with felt, tucking the edges into a groove for neatness. A lot of people do not like poplar, but I do not know why. Seems nice to me. I finished the box with oil, except the bottom which I painted black with acrylic paint. Some of the black paint got into the oil, giving it an aged effect. A lucky coincidence.
