The box is all sassafras except for the cherry lid. All the sassafras came from the same board….and the differing colorations is just the way it cured I guess. Made this for the person who gave me the sassafras. Thanks for looking.

Hi Jay, that’s a neat little box, I have never used sassafras, how is it to work with?

Nice little box.
Pity to have to give it to the giver.
Maybe make another one for yourself.
