This box is a good deal similar to one of my other project posts. I used some more of the spalted maple that I got from a log I found in my brother’s wood pile last year. This stuff really makes nice looking accent pieces when used in boxes. I added this one to my Etsy Store with a couple other boxes today, all of which I have added to my projects page today.
I used some walnut for the main box that I got a few weeks ago at an estate tag sale where an old woodworker had died. I was flabergasted by the amount of cherry and walnut that I got from that sale for a little bit of nothing in $$$. The particular piece of some of that walnut really had some awesome looking figure in it and I used it to show it off in this box. Again, I used my Porter Cable miniature box jig template to make the joinery. I put burgandy velvet in the bottom of the box to finish it off.
