A gift for a friend, this little box started out life as off-cut wood flooring. Not sure what it is. Its the light wood. The red insets in the lid is Bubinga. All hand cut lap joint construction with Bubinga splines. I also experimented a little with ‘aging’ the wood to create a antique-ish feel to it. I rubbed a small amount of cherry wood filler onto the sanded light wood parts. then wiped it off with a rag. It filled into the pores of the wood in a pretty pleasing way. I then lightly sanded it again and finished it with natural Danish Oil to which I added a little bit of ‘Golden Oak” Danish Oil for a little yellowing.It was well received and I had fun making it.
