It Takes Two to Mango A local woodworking buddy gave me a small chunk of Mango and an odd shaped piece of Opiuma (Yup, it’s a new one on me, too). After re-sawing and glueing, I was able to stretch the two into a pair of boxes. The larger tapered box with the lift off lid is approx. 6×6, the smaller one with the hidden pin-hinged lid is 5×5 inches. The lift off lid is 4 panels with a thin divider of oak. The mango has wonderful cross grain highlights and some spalting. Both boxes are finished with satin poly and lined with black suede. When I finished, I had one little 2×2 scrap of mango left over.
