This is a Lacewood pencil box that my wife found the plans for in a magazine. I used a garnet shellac to finish it with. Probably made the lacewood to dark for my taste but my wife liked it. My wife reminded me of how I scared myself several times cutting tiny little pieces of wood on the table saw. If there is a next time, I think I will use the band saw more! My wife wants a bigger version of the pencil box made.
Update for September 6, 2013-I added some pictures…and you probably noted the color appears to have changed. Not really, the added photos were taken in natural light and the original photo was taken using artificial light. It really is the same pencil box.
And finally, for those that were interested, the plans for this particular pencil box came from Woodworkers Journal, December 2012, page 52.
Thanks for all the views and especially for all the comments. I really appreciate the feedback.
