Mini Box – Brazilian Rosewood and Maple. Every year, a good buddy gives me a small piece of wood for my birthday…....this one was 4×24 x 1/4 inch thick Brazilian Rosewood. Now, I don’t like to waste a nice stick, so I tried to see how economical I could be…..I used just a bit over one half of it, in combination with some nice curly maple….thanks Wilson.
The box is small, 5×3.5 inches, with hybrid half-lap corner joints, and the lid is hinged with hidden pins. The bottom is lined with black suede, and it is finished with satin poly.

A very nicely designed and well made box, JB!

i’m incredibly jealous you got to use brazialian rosewood. I’ve been dying to make a guitar with it for years. i just can’t afford to pay $1000K + for just the tonewood alone
