Don’t know the exact name of the walnut in the top. The light streaks in the center were formerly on each edge of the board. It was cut lengthwise then flip matched bringing the streaks to near the center. The rest of the box is af mahogany. It is 8 by 11 by 5.5”. Anyone know the type of walnut?

It looks like a little bit of Fiddleback or Curly Walnut. Look at my projects and I have some in a box top. Nice work on the box.

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and so little time!

Robert, Yep! it does. Wish I knew where I got it. I think I’ll go for a more glossy finish after seeing yours. Thanks ;-J

Hey Don. Glad you chimed in. These are the miters I get from the method I spoke of when you posted the question about box miters. The sled just needs to be appropriate for the size of stock of course and the wixey reading from the sled to the blade is imparative. I’m along way from being an expert and I know it. Just letting you know what I stumbled onto. ;-J PS. I meant to say that the type of sled we are talking about here is where the box side is laying flat on the sled, unlike the one pictured as an answer on that same post. This is really just a crosscut sled w/blade at 45.

Just a wonderful built box, nice wood tone and grain flow. I would say the wood is Curly Walnut and is just beautiful on this piece thanks for posting…BC

Very nice box. Looks like curly black walnut, and the lighter shade is probably the sap wood. The mitered corners are nicely done and the splines add a touch of class.

Nice job.
