This box came about as I have recently purchased a bandsaw (Scheppach Basato 3h vario, very good so far) and I was asked to make a gift for someone with the initial S.
I made this by making a blank from mahogany and hardwood ply, and cutting out on the bandsaw in the normal bandsaw box way (thanks to lumberjocks for info).
Once assembled I decided to add some veneer to the drawers for extra contrast I think it is Cocobolo or maccasser ebony but please let me know if you think differently, it came from an offcut selection i purchased.
The handles are maple.
The finish is french polish which I have never done before and is very labour intensive. The deep lustre that it produces is worth it though, next time I will do it on a nice flat table or something though.
The drawers are lined in pigskin that I got from my mothers material stash.
