My son and I got beautifull ivory handle folding knifes for Xmas from his Grandparents (my inlaws). They knifes are spectacular but the little 1/8” mdf boxes they came in were not. So today I made us new boxes to display our knifes in.
Its Rock Maple and, well I dont know. The other wood used to be a baseboard yesteday. I found it among a heap of moulded pine baseboards that was demo’d from a construction project. Its heavy, soft chocolate broun, pretty grain and smells delicicious when sawed. Like hot chocoloate or something similiar. Its very hard, very dense and my initial thought was Walnut. But who makes baseboards out of Walnut? Any input would be appreciated. I also recently got my first router. Anyone notice?
Its finished with 5 layers of paste wax sanded to 600 gritt between layers.
Thanks for looking.
