This was a wedding gift for a good friend (with a bottle of wine inside). The box is reclaimed mahogany that was torn out of a really old house during a remodel. It’s probably 100+ years old or so. It has nails holes in various places but the grain was just so beautiful that I wanted to use it for something special. And boy, was that a joy to work, my dovetail saw and I fell in love with it…I wish I had more of it.
The top is walnut. Finished with watco and wax.
