I made this piece for my granddaughter. The main box is prime pine with walnut splines. I laminated pine, walnut and cedar and inlaid that into the top. A semi-gloss poly was used for the finish.

Nice work on the box , I like the clean top , did you rabbet the top to fit the panel strips of hardwood? To make a smooth transition?

Very nice, I’ve got 3 Grangirls, The 4 year old picked up some purple heart and said Granpa you could build me something from this. So I guess a box is on order!

We rarely see such wide splines, but they came out great. Well done.
