Here is another Christmas gift project. A small keepsake box made from Padauk, Cherry, Maple and Wenge.
The box is mitered with maple splines and the corners were rounded over. This was the first time I had ever worked with Padauk and I felt it was a rather nice wood to work with, especially with hand tools. Wenge on the other hand is not so friendly with hand tools. I finished the box with 4 coats of tung oil.
