Here is my final box for fathers day. I made this one for my wife’s dad. This one took some time to get it right. I wanted it perfect as I could get any way. Bob (my father in-law is a big fisherman, so I added a picture of a rainbow trout n the lid for him, & I cut a piece of Plexiglas to cover it. The main box is made of oak, the lid is canary wood, for the trim I selected leopard wood. I made the splines out of wenge wood for a good contrast as well as for supports for the tray. The tray is made out of monkey pod wood. I dyed the box in orange and finished it with a couple of coats of tung oil. I also added some brown felt in the tray & the bottom. I also used a couple of rare earth magnets for the lid closure. We gave it to him and he just loved it. This is my first attempt at a hexagon box so I took my time making it. Well I hope you all like it. Happy woodworking.
