How many time have we by pass the uses of sapwood on projects. Well on this occasion the accented lid is Curly Cherry sapwood which compliments the popular better side Curly Black Cherry along with a strip of Tiger Maple. The finish start off with a coat of Danish Oil follow off with a French Polish making for a nice translucent look to the overall appearance. Thanks for viewing have a great week everyone…Blkcherry

Once again , you have created more beauty , BC : )
The ripples in the lid along with the curl really brings these boxes to life. I like the picture with the lids open as well.
Have a great day : )

Blackcherry: I made a Thorsen Greene and Greene hall table a while ago and I also used some accent sapwood for the shelf.

I found a board that had sapwood of both sides and on the end.

I not only agree that sapwood needs to be used more, I Appland you for doing so! Great job.

Wilson, like someone has to stand up for the kid being bullied, you make a great case for using the often maligned, or even discarded, sapwood. It works beautifully in this application. As always, your boxes are wonderfully crafted. I love the “ripples”.

Your boxes are always a knockout. Love the Cherry, it is one of my favorite wood, the choice of the use of sap wood was a good one!

Thanks for sharing

Well done Blkcherry – excelent contrast of colors in the wood!
