This is my newest project that i have made for my sister in law. i made this box from a 4×4 of red cedar that came from the home of folks who use to take care of her when she was young, and the knobs on top of the side boxes came from a bulls horn that came one of the bulls they raised here at her home, i wanted many elements to be in this project that would always remind her of home, so we have red cedar, walnut,pecan, padauk, bubinga, curly maple and southern heart pine for the bottom . i put a wisp of curly maple into the hinges, and i did a very thin inlay of padauk into the pecan top, the hinge holes are plugged with bubinga, and the bottom of the box is the southern heart pine,i also cut a 1/8 inch datto into the side boxes as to let it blend sorta with the inlays of the main box, i flocked the inside of the side boxes doing the sides as well as the bottom and i finished the project using tung oil, it was a wonderful time making this for her and being in the shop i just let the inspiration flow and had a ball, thank you for taking the time to look at my project…grizzman

A great looking box Griz. She should be ver-r-r-ry happy with it.
