Alot of non-woodworking distractions this past week…but I did manage to get this box completed today.
I thought it was all Cocobolo but the more I look at the box and compare it to the top I get my doubts. I know the top is definitely Cocobolo but the rest just looks different and I am not sure what it is.
I added some maple plugs to add a bit of contrast to the dark woods and I like the effect it gives.
The bottom is lined with leather and the finish is lacquer.
I bought some alligator hide and ostrich skin this week and hopefully will have time to incorporate them in some box linings very soon.
-- Each step of every Wood Art project I design and build is considered my masterpiece… because I want the finished product to reflect the quality and creativeness of my work
