Here is one of a recent run of Bevel Box Humidor, this one made from B.E. Maple and Mahogany wood. The finish is a Danish Oil and a French Polish. The deer horn is a faux product bought at the Bass Pro Shop. This will be added to Santa’s stash for the holidays, thanks for viewing…Blkcherry

Nice.
Good to see Santa stashing stuff away.

Danish Oil, French Polish, and Bass Pro Shop. Never thought I would see those three together.

Beautiful wood combination. The bevels add a nice focus for the Maple. Fax deer horn? So Bambi was not injured in the making of this box?

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and now time to work!!!

Thanks Steve but you have to admit the three came out to be a manly box…lol

Karson this Mahogany has a great story about a 2 month ago I answer a ad on none other than C.List. A gent was sell off his grandfather 40 year stash of lumber, the ad read for Butternut so I inquired. The planks were 9ft long by 17” wide and extremely straight in a rough saw state. He was asking 200.00 and I offered 50 less of asking and he was extremely glad to sell just to clear some space in his garage. I had to cut 2ft off each plank for store in my shop and I took one piece to the bench and took a hand plane to see the real grain and then my jaw hit the floor MAHOGANY not butternut. Now the gent told me his grandfather had this stored in his barn for over 40 years which lead me to believe that this stash is Cuban Mahogany so I did some grain comparison and I’m 90 percent sure its Cuban, nice find for some unique projects…Blkcherry

Blackcherry:

What a find. I’ve gotten about 400-500 BD ft of mahogany from a door and window company. this was scrap that i got for nothing. It was donated for our toy making outreach for the Mason Dixon Woodworkers. I made 125 cars last year and 150 this year. I posted them as a project last year. Some of the mahogany is 3” thick by 20” wide. Almost all less than 30” long. Long than that they keep as not scrap.

But before I got it, one of the employees was using it as firewood.

I know> I picked clean a box that had about a cord of firewood 4 X 4 X 8’ – All mahogany.

he started to take it home and not store it on site. We since became friends so he saves me the prime pieces and he takes the real firewood. I could possible use small pieces but when you make pieces for 120 toys you need at least some wood of similar dimensions.

Very nice!

I’m a little disappointed about the faux antler, though. I was expecting a great story about how you snuck up on a sixteen-pointer and killed him barehanded. :-)

That’s a beaut BC.
The finish is really something too.
And, the woodsy scenic shots for your background are a really nice touch.

Great job as always Wilson and that is some stunning wood. Both the mahogany and the bird’s eye maple are gorgeous.
