Hmmm…let’s see…I’ll have to describe it this way…4 woods; Mahogany & Aspen, Oak, Lacewood. The rounded corners of both species of wood are joined in a box-joint. The highly flamed grain of the mahogany flickers out as it rounds into the end grain. The highly sanded & polished dark grain, contrasts against the calm straight grain of the aspen, with some golden luminance. Simple dadoed sides hold a 3/16” oak ply bottom. The muted side faces in, leaving the more dramatic cathedral grained side facing out. A 1/2” top was veneered with Lacewood to give the box a bold look. I zoomed in to show more details of the build. To describe the build, I routed box-joints in Aspen and Mahogany, joined the bottom, an aspen lid was veneered with lacewood on both sides and pinned with hardwood dowels and steel pins. 3 thin coats of Honey Pine gloss poly were added and polished. This one was for me. I like it.
