This box is made with figured Sapele on the front and back, Cherry on the ends and top and Genuine mahogany on the bottom.

The Cherry boards in the picture had some kind of defect. It went through the middle of the planks and almost looks like bark. This top came from the board on the right. I had cut off from three boards that his this defect. One persons scrap is another’s treasure.

The box was finished with Brazilian Rosewood Nut Oil (Penofin)

I want to thank Andy for the Tutorial and some tips on making these boxes.

Nice boxes—excellent workshop project. I wonder if that cherry lumber “defect” could have been caused by a lightning strike? It is an interesting figure. Nice job of showing it the lid as a “live?” edge.

Hi Karson;

Really, how long would it take to make one more cut…surely you must have noticed the rough edge.

Very nice buddy.

Lee:

I did notice that rough edge after I got the finish applied and my rag kept grabbing on something.

But I figured what the heck. I’m going to give it away so why find the problem.

But I do appreciate you pointing it out. I’ll try to be more observant during the earlier phases of a project. But I would like to point out that Andy didn’t say anything in his tutorial that this condition might occur and what should be done to fix it.

I would think that OSHA might want to get involved in his tutorials if this is the kind of situation that was not addressed during the training.

Great looking piece. It’s fun to make something work out of what would end up firewood. Good job.
