Hey fellow LJ’s, this is my first project post and Im pretty happy with the way it turned out. I do have a few questions tho and hope you guys could help me out. First off this is what I made for my wife for mothers day its kind of a spice box/ trinket box, really whatever she wants to use it for. I made this from a pallet I got ahold of, and now the questions. First off I wanted to make sure of the species of wood my guess is cherry but not 100% sure, and also I need some advise Ive been a woodworker for about two years now but just got into using spline keys for my miter joints and in the 4th pic (sorry for the low quality pics) I tried to show off that the miter keys arent identical, for example the top is endgrain on both sides and the bottom one is long grain on one side and endgrain on the other, is there a way to cut the spline stock and insert it so that there is longrain on both sides? Thanks in advance for all your help and support.
