This box is made from bubinga with oak dowels. It has a solid birds eye maple top. I used 6 coats of spray on poly for the finish. Sorry for the bad pictures. This box went to my neighbor as soon as I completed it. It is about 14 inches long and 6 inches wide.

That’s nice, my wife’s name is Dorothy and she saw this over my shoulder and since everyone calls her Dot, she asked when I was going to make something like that for her? Another project added to the list.

Nice box Cozmo

Now tell us, did this go to the same neighbour for whom you have made all those beautiful corsses? You certainly do look after your neighbours well.

Cosmo, I like the way you did that box. It’s got a different look to it that I like. Nice work.

Hey Cosmo, very nice work. Is there any kind of pattern to the arrangement of the dots, or is it just random?
