Someone here said that this is BS drawer set, not BS box, so let’s call it that way. The mission was to make box, but wanted to use all scraps, so candle, photo holder and two small additional boxes were my idea. Outside layer is apple and all other mahogany, pine and firwood. Finished with 3 layers of varnish. It’s something like fish shape. Don’t look on glue stains on fronts – I see them too now!

Nice job of using all the wood to make all the matching pieces, Ivan!!
Unique shape on the box. I would have not guessed to be glue satin but coloring of the wood!!

Cheers, Jim

Nice box, good use of leftovers. To coat the interiors
what did you use? I employ the adhesive velor .

They all look nice Ivan, Those glue spots could be fixed. You would have to do some rework on the handles and do a little more sanding and refinishing but heck! Your a woodworker so it should be easy! Other than that Nice work!

What glue stains?
Good looking box and candle holder.
Nice family portrait should have a nice frame with the holder .

That is a stunning piece of work. That’s putting scraps to a beautiful box. Great combination of wood.

Very nice boxes! Well done. Always huge satisfaction to use scraps. :-)
Using the cut-off from a scrapwood using project should be a double satisfaction! :-D
It made me think why you chose the apple instead of the mahogany. It must have been nicer, that’s all. :-D

Mariva57, for interior I used fabric for billiards table or other gambling table. I bought it in nearest fabric store, it’s not so expensive.
Johny, very good observation. Personaly, apple is more beautiful and is much more colourful than mahogany. Far away that mahogany isn’t nice.
At mahogani there is only one colour, that’s why it isn’t on the front.
Thanks for coment anyway.

They all look attractive with the pretty wood combo and nice finish. Great stuff from the use of scraps. Great work!
