I made this box today out of the Redwood Robert Triplett brought me and I teamed it up with Zebra Wood and Padauk The edges are also Padauk. I left the sun burnt wood on the inside because the dark wood makes the zebra wood stand out. The front edge was a after thought. Its 8” x 6” and just under 4” thick. Hope you all enjoy and Robert Triplett any more bad comments on my wood and your next project I’ll dog you LOL. P.S. To you all that don’t know me Robert is my friend. He is the one that got me into making boxes and cutting boards and is my mentor to them. I just build different than him. Just don’t show him a abstract he wount see it.
Thanks to everyone on LJ’s for there support and comments.

Looks good Dennis. I like the way you added the Padauk. All of the woods go together well and the weathered wood on the inside even looks good. A good days work.

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and now time to work!!!
