This is a wedding gift for our cousins daughter. The wood is Bodark, yellow, and Padauk, red.
These were ripped and glued together and mitered on the table with a rig. Dado was cut for the bottom insert, it is cedar, I always use cedar for the bottoms of my boxes. Dry fitted and and glued, miter key s were cut and Padauk was used for the keys. Sanded and finished with Watco clear oil. Box on the left is the for the bride and the other is for the mother of the bride.
Lids were made from Padauk, rabbits cut all the way around to fit.
Feet detail was cut on the bandsaw and sanded on drum sander.
Bodark came from an old barn in Rockdale, TX. Got two pick up truck loads from that barn of kinds on woods, been there for 15 years, just waiting, and it was all free for the hauling.
