This one is “wavy riftsawn” poplar. I’ve never seen such stock at the “big box” store. Normally there are greenish yellow streaks. This has a nice wavy purplish grain, with an even color throughout on all 4 sides.
The corners are chamfered butt joints. this would have been nice stock to make a continuous grain box out of. Apart from the joinery, the grain does run countinously around this box.
The box is 11×7x5. 5/8th stock. Currently unfinished.
