This is a box that I made for my wife for this past Xmas (yes it was finished for Xmas, just takes me awhile to post things)
All the materials that were uses were milled by myself with the exception of the Ebony (if I do find an ebony tree around here, I will be keeping that to myself….lol) and mahogany dividers. Lid is from a rather large cedar burl, sides are old growth fir, bottom of drawer and box both spalted maple. The mahogany was from pallets found in an old building store and the ebony was store bought.
Most of the shaping was done with a 5”grinder with various grits being used. I have never done splines before so there was a jig eventually built. Dimensions 19”x11.5”x5”
All in all a fun project and the wife loves it.
