This was a project where I even made the wood. There is a kitchen cabinet manufacturer in Shediac where I live. I had been buying kindling from them, one day I decided to laminate the 3/4” by 3/4” sticks together. I used all oak and they looked beautiful. I then ran them through the planer to pare off some weight and ended up with the box. The dark accent wood around the lid is walnut got it from the same place. Here in Canada using Walnut for kindling is akin to lighting a cigar with a $100 dollar bills. I gave it to my son to house his knife collection.
