This is a tissue box cover I made for the podium at church. The top and inlay are canary wood. I’m not sure what the dark wood is. It was a scrap from an abandoned project.

Nice. Makes me want to sneeze so I have to grab a tissue from it. ;)

Is anyone else thinking the mystery wood is some sort of mahogany here, or am I way off?

Very nice project, good segmentation…

Jonathan, I think you’re right. It does look like a Mahogany.

Cool idea, and well executed.

Very nice. I like the soft corners and satiny finish.

Very, very nice – I like it! Do I detect a slight rise to the cover and, if so, how did you accomplish this? Also, what was the thickness of the wood – I’ve made some covers for the smaller boxes and have used 5/16” and 3/8” thickness but was just wondering what you used on this beautiful box.

Thanks everyone.
I used a raised panel bit with the back cutter removed on the top, to get the raised part and then a 1/8 round over bit all around the smooth out the rough look. Its finished with tung oil. The top is 3/4”. it was made thick so I could use the panel bit. The thickness where it attaches to the top is about 3/8”. The sides are 1/2”.
