Went a little more elaborate with this box than in past boxes. Padauk with some book-matched burl veneer and a little bit of walnut. Sides are rabbets pinned with 1/8’’ brass rod sanded flush. Definitely should have used a brad-point bit, as there was a bit of wander, but I got impatient and you all know how that usually ends up. First time trying to grain match a drawer, ended up alright but messed up the grain going around the box. All in all, a great learning experience for future boxes. All comments/questions/criticisms appreciated.
Never gave credit to Blake’s box, some pretty heavy inspiration: http://lumberjocks.com/projects/42170
