Robert Triplet sent me several small pieces of very cool California woods. This redwood burl looked like it wanted to be inlaid so I bought a compact plunge router (my first plunge router) and had a go. I don’t usually mix hard and soft woods so decided to use some Western Red Cedar with the RW burl. That WRC is so soft it dents if you speak harshly to it! But this box resulted. Dimensions: 12×8x4 1/2”. Finished with LOTS of rubbed on shellac (that WRC is like a sponge). Splines are redwood burl and Patron hinges are Jatoba. Kinda unusual Luan ply for the bottom.
