This was a second box I made this weekend. I found a really nice piece of Tiger Maple during my shop cleanup and reorganization and realized it was a box waiting to happen. The finish is Boiled Linseed Oil and lacquer. I really like the way the BLO brings out the grain in certain woods and this was one of them.
I added a small Bubbabinga wrap around piece about 1” from the bottom because it seemed to make the box easier to pick up. The bubbabinga strip is mitered and glued into a 3/8” dado that is 1/4” deep.
