A client recently gave me an 8’ flat sawn sycamore 2×12 left over from her barn (the entire barn is lined with beautiful rough sawn sycamore she had milled). I resawed a short section so as not to waste any and noticed beautiful quarter sawn grain when I edge jointed the board I sawed so I ripped some strips to incorporate into the box. Dimensions are 12×7x4”. Construction was Martyn’s EZ Mitre technique. Walnut ‘lipping’ and walnut Shipwright hinge. Finish was several coats of shellac sanding between coats. I took lots of pics trying to show the QS strips. I also oriented the grain to flow front to back this time and I like this effect.
