Here is another Art Box for a auction for the High School. The first art box I made was for a auction for the grade school and sold so good that I was asked immediately for another one for the High School. I used walnut and maple with walnut splines. You may notice that I use walnut a lot. The reason for that is when I purchased my house and shop the previous owner had slabs of walnut stored above the wood shop. Each board is about 12”-14” wide and about 10 feet long. I had about 20 slabs or so. I thought I hit the mother load but I soon notice when he cut it, most boards are right at 3/4” thick ROUGH. So with that said you might start seeing a lot of Palm boxes due to the fact they only need 1/2” thick lumber.
