This box is made from Big Leaf Maple Burl that I bought 5-8 Years ago. I resawed the burl and was planning to make some clocks. That was not done and this wood was just laying around “So you snoose you Lose”.
The front and back is figured Sapele and the ends are Cherry.
The burl was big enough to give me 3 1/2” slices and each slice will have enough for about 7-8 tops. So I should be able to make a few more of these if I desire.
It is finished with Brazillian Rosewood Nut Oil (Penofin). I wanted to try the Deft Lacquar but the temp of the shop wouldn’t allow it. This oil dried fine.
I want to thank Andy for the Tutorial and some tips on making these boxes. The wood on this box is all 3/8” thick except for the top. It’s a little thicker.
