Finally got these finished last night. The first one I posted had a WOP finish but that refused to work on either of these, so now they have a “Krylon” clear varnish finish.
The smallest Box is made from a 3.75in cube of Tasmanian Myrtle.
The middle one is a 4in cube of Blackheart Sassafras. The lid is recessed down into the base approx 7/8in because I wanted to maintain the pattern in the wood. I cut the lid along the grain so that it was 4in across but that was too small to fit in the base which is cut on the apex’s. The only answer was to recess the lid.
The biggest one is from a 4.25in cube of Canadian Yellow Cedar, and the lid is also Tasmanian Myrtle but this piece is figured grain. The pattern on the base is a sad attempt at woodburning.
Hope you enjoy and thanks for looking.
