This Show Box is made of Argentine Mesquite for the base, Bastogne Walnut for the sides and ends and the top is Burled Redwood with an insert of what is said to be a ten million year old fossil fish. The box is about 14×4x3 high. Thanks to Mr. Rapp for giving me the idea.

You can see the pictures of this box on my web site at as well as get a free copy of how to build a Maloof syle rocking chair.

It’s obvious you chose the most interesting piece of wood for the top. Lot’s of very cool figure in that wood.
