While not as detailed as some of the boxes I admire on this site, I am getting a lot done. The first is a Mahogany box with a top of Quilted maple. John Ormsby in Sacramento talked me into taking this piece of wood that was the outside cut on a quilted log. He thought it had promise and I agreed. The mahogany came from a guy’s Dad’s old stash, maybe 40 years old. No idea what type, but it is a nice chocolate brown. An 11’ 2×6! The next box is Lacewood with a top of Madrone Burl. This came from Oregon Burls. It is a warped gnarly piece that my bandsaw did not like. The last is Redwood with a top of Redwood burl. Again, simple designs that use nice wood. It’s one way to work fast!! All have Watco Danish Oil. Thanks for the ‘UGLY’ wood John.
