These small group of boxes are made from various species of cut=offs from larger projects. I enjoyed the thought and process of saving these pieces from the trash and possibly bring a new life for them to hold small treasures,
Thr finish is Danish oil, applied in three coats, dried and polished with lemon oil applied with 600 grit wet or dry sandpaper. This took longer to finish than to actually build the boxes.
Pictures left to right : Ash box with rewood keys and a bulbinga top…middle is beech box with zebrawood keys and marblewood top…right redwood (salvaged from a bench tossed out for trash pick up) maple keys and Ambrosia top…back is a pencil pencil made from Maple with Ambrosia sliding top, using 1/8” finger joints.
