This box is truly pieced together. Dimensions = 10 1/2”L x 5 1/2”W x 5”H. The carcase of the box is sasafras and then I took a previously posted CB—that I didn’t like—and cut it up for the top and bottom. Then….I figured I would use the rest of the CB to line the box! It worked out great. The border that holds the top in place is cherry. The woods used in this are cedar, cherry, spalted hickory, sycamore, sassafras, and walnut. I applied danish oil (2 coats), wipe-on poly (2 coats), and then a special blended wax. I wet sanded this thing twice and then took a scotch pad to it. I tried getting it as smooth and buffed as I could. Compared to the unfinished pic, the final product is satisfactory to me. Thanks for the looks and comments.
