Finished sanding Second of 5 boxes,
Walnut with maple stripe, Ipe side with plywood second side with walnut streak,
Brass pin, side wood unknown but could be Hickory,
Thanks again to all the previous Art box carvers, too many to mention but hats off to Andy who started it all.
Finish is “Ace Hardware Enamel Gloss”??
Carving is fun and Dangerous,
don’t try unless you want to breath a lot of sawdust
Just kidding.

TNX for watching.

What a wild combination of woods, well done too.
Now go make more and give them away :-)

That’s a special box and I love the wood combination. Nicely done too.
