The lid of this box is Bocote, the sides are Zebrawood, which I think flows very nicely with the Bocote. The front and back are made from padauk for a splash of color.
This one was a hard one for me to finish. When I started sculpting the Bocote I immidiatly disliked it. While it is very pretty it is hard to work. IMHO. It had a foul odor. My shop smelled awful for days along with my hands. I almost tossed it in the firewood pile but I was really scared what that would smell like. My brother in law came to visit and took a real liking to it, so I finished it for him.
I like the look of Bocote, but I am not sure I will work with it again. I am sure I will not try to do much sculpting or sanding on it. LOL.
Thanks for taking a look.
