I resawed a short section of cedar beam a friend gave me, then resawed some redwood salvaged from our old deck. This box had a couple of firsts for me: the inset lid and the multi-layer splines which were both fun to figure out. The lid was too thin to drill for hinge pins so I attached hard maple blocks to avoid splitting my top out. This worked very well and I’ll do this again. Finish is BLO and wax.
