A gift box for a friend of mine.

It’s cherry, walnut, and peach wood…

The interior still needs to be lined, but I haven’t had a ton of time lately.

Making stuff like this is fun, because it’s a challenge doing delicate work with all of our blunt force style tools… Oh, and I would have done a much better job of sanding the exterior of the drawer… but both of our spindle sanders are out of commission…

It reminds me of bread. I am not sure why.
I think I might be hungry.

A very striking box, I love the contrasting woods and the design.

Nice combination of timbers, a gift I suspect that will be well received.
