One of my LJ buddies (Naked Joinery) sent me a nice piece of crotch walnut to play with. I resawed it and there was a bullet in one half of the bookmatch! I had to use the bullet half so another box resulted (of course). Dimensions: 12 1/2×8 1/2×5”. Frame is sycamore. Tray is walnut sapwood with walnut splines in box and tray. Finish is rubbed shellac. Patron/Grizz wooden hinges of sycamore. I really love that piece of crotch on the end panel. Wood from my friends puts a lot of pressure on me to perform so I’ve got a lot of hours in this one. But enjoyed every minute!
