This gift-box is made of resawn Eucalyptus with Mahogany splines and a Maple stripe inlay. Finished with base coat of boiled linseed oil and 4 coats of pure blonde shellac. The top is fitted with a 1/4 inch routed inset. The inlay was my first and worked out to be a great learning project.

Nice looking box, I bet the wood combos smell as good as they look!

Great looking box! Isn’t it amazing how much you can learn from a simple box?
