Another box I just completed. These were started before I had cataract surgery on my right eye. I have 2 more to make trays for and finish, but I go for the left eye Tuesday. Then 5 days with no sawdust! I have to make some small cutting boards also so I can do finishing out of the shop. The box sides are Peruvian Walnut. The top is Peruvian Walnut framed with Curly Maple. The tray is Curly Ambrosia Maple. I bought quite a bit of this and since it is soft, i resaw it into tray parts. I will have to try Boxguy’s idea of looking for venetian blind slats. A lot less work. But this wood is pretty. The box is 11” x 6” x 7”. Watco Danish oil as a finish. I can see the inside around the dividers needs attention. It is hard to get the excess oil off. Thanks for looking.

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and so little time!
