Pictured: Another venture into box making without the use of a bandsaw, I used spalted chinaberry to make this box, splines used Mahogany and maple for the lift out tray, the wood came from curbside as it wait to be put into landfill, I just saved it and put it to better use, at first I thought this was a form of Ash without really knowing what kind of wood it was until I got my hands on another true chinaberry tree down on it’s side from high winds I took my chainsaw to it then after getting it home and cutting into it I saw the same characteristic as the log I found on curbside also this wood has a very porous and open grain also easy to work. It measures
9 1/2” x 6” x 5 1/2” and finished with a single coat of tung oil, few coats of wipe on poly and a final coat of paste wax.
Thanks for looking and comments are always enjoyed.
