This is a simple cedar box with a few strips of Poplar set into the top.

Can’t go wrong with poplar, that most under appreciated wood. A lovely piece, soft and warm with that cedar.

New Lowe’s just opened here and picked up a couple of really interesting poplar boards with the same idea.
I have lots of cedar from the Sunshine Shine coast, thanks for the inspiration!

I LOVE Poplar. It’s my favorite wood. On one piece you can get light tan hues, transitioning into green, dark green all the way into pitch black.

Thanks for the compliments. This was a fun box to make.
