I found some wood locally that seemed unfit for most applications. One board, 1×8 about 30 inches long. Brown in color, it had hundreds of holes in it.
Not sure of the wood species, but I thought it would make a cool box. The top is a nice slab of cherry.
I decided not to put splines or any corner detail and let the little board’s worm holes shine as the star in my little production. It turned into one of my favorites. Very nice size (see ruler photo) and solid. Two simple hinges and a finish of tung oil with about 6 coats of wipe on poly.
I wish I had more like this!
