As always I call it Wonder wood because we are still wondering what it is. A gfadvm style valet. Bottom is red cedar, sides and drawer are Ash. I actually put epoxy on the top. Probably won’t do this on a small project again. Too messy. Especially with this wood.

Thanks for looking

Monte, Is that some of that SD Balsa we talked about? I just learned that acetone is what you clean up epoxy with. That was a revelation. I thought you just had to wear it for a few weeks!
