Dennis,( of Dennis and Laura, fellow Lumberjocks) and I decided to have a friendly contest and each build a box starting with the same piece of Redwood. We could add any other woods and do any style of box. Then I got sick from the little darlings at school and just now finished mine. The Redwood we started with is on the sides came and the Birdseye Maple seemed to add some nice contrast. I used Redwood Burl and Big Leaf Maple Burl for the top. The bottom is from thin Claro Walnut that was a gift from Allen of MilwaukeeWoodworks. Watco Natural Danish Oil for the finish. I may spray a couple of coats of Poly on later. It is about 9” x 6” x 6”. Let us know which you like best. No hurt feelings either way. I have been building boxes longer than Dennis, but he is doing well in a short time.
-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and so little time!
