Piece of rather nicely colored canarywood. Canarywood doesn’t usually come in very wide planks so I added the tulipwood stripe in the top with wenge accents. I should have planed it down thinner as it looks heavy, but it does the job.

I like it! As for being heavy I hate when you pull on a tissue and you get the tissue plus the box because it is too light. The woods are very beautiful, great work.

Really pretty piece, and good choice of lumber for accents! Would have been a shame to send more of that pretty canarywood into the dust collector, and weight is not a bad thing for a tissue holder. Great job!

You’ll have to put some gold tissue in there, to try and match the beauty of the wood.

Great job.

Canary wood is a great wood that is not very well know by many.

Hey Cisco…
What a pretty box! The wood types go together soooo good. I like the heft of the box, won’t move when you pull on a tissue.

Thanks for Sharing!

Wow, very very nice. And I really like the tulipwood set off with the wenge as well. thats a combination I would not have thought of, but it looks great!

This one’s added to my fav’s. Thanks for posting.

It would want to wipe my nose all the time, just to look at the box. Thanks for sharing.

Very nice!! I like the use of canarywood, I would have never thought to use it. I personaly like the thickness too, my cat loves to knock things off the table all the time and the added weight would be welcomed if it were for me !! Great piece
