The finish cured on Christmas eve just in time. The box is 3”x5”x7and1/2”. The carcass is from a skid from work. I don’t know what kind of wood it is. Any ideas guys? The top is walnut with the center piece being from the same board as the box. Feet are walnut, with the splines being cocobolo. The tray is mahogany from a yard sale find. Just a note on the feet – I used two pieces 1/2”x1/4” and T glued them together after radiusing once on one piece and thrice on another. You will see how they get glued together. Cut half of them at whatever length at 45 degrees, then flip piece over and cut other half. I like this style of feet as I used them on another box. So, if anyone knows what the mystery wood is, please let me know. The last picture shows a closer view, but the color doesn’t show true. Thanks for the look.
