This is a very nice box. I like the design of it. What type of finish did you put on it?

Not too bad for a first attempt: it looks like you have been doing it a while. Mahogany is a wood I love to work with, but my wallet does not like to part with the money. Nice use of reclaimed wood!

Thanks Brian. I try to use all reclaimed wood if possible. If its not possible there is a sawmill near me that has more than reasonable prices on shorts, (mostly mahogany). I believe that we live only an hour or so apart, im in Easton Pa. , About 20 minutes from Dorney Park on interstate 78. I’ll try to find the name of the sawmill if you are interested.

Thanks Gary. Its made with six 3/4” wide 1/4 thick strips of walnut. the recess for the inlay was done with a router and cleaned up the corners with a chisel
