I really love this one. It’s going to be tough to see it go. While it is a fairly basic box, the wood is incredible. The box is Tiger Maple with Bolivian Rosewood miter keys. the lid is made of strips of the same Maple and Bolivian Rosewood with a handle made of Chechen (Caribbean Rosewood).

Thanks for taking a look.

Joey

Very nice Joey….but is it easy to see any of them go? Very interesting design on the bottom material. It stands out nicely. What do you use to keep the top centered and stable?

Thank you very much.
@ Greg, The lid is 3/4 with a 3/8 dado that sits down into the box. I really like the fabric also.

Chechen is my absolute favorite wood to turn. It works and takes a finish really well. Fun fact – it’s also called black poisonwood. The trees have nasty black sap that is worse than poison ivy. Wear a respirator when sanding this stuff.

The Bolivian is my favorite, but I like the Chechen. I almost called it poisonwood for dramatic effect, but I figured one clever name was enough for one day. ;-)

Thanks Jim,

Is there really that many more people on the site that view numbers can go that quickly? I still have boxes with less views than this that are much nicer. It doesn’t make since to me.
