This pencil box project was completed by my son Matt, 11, and me. We used Alowood New Zealand Pine for the box and the frame of the parquet lid. We also used ash and purple heart. We finished with a honey pine poly/stain.
Alowood is an interesting hardening process that takes sustainable softwoods and turns them into a hardwood. See http://www.prweb.com/releases/sustainablewoodproducts/environmentallyfriendly/prweb434717.htm
