Last week I got 60 bd. ft of Tigerwood so I could try use for some boxes and have some on hand for whatever projects might come to mind.
This is a design I have used for several of my recent boxes… while cutting out some cypress I decided to cut up enough of this wood for several boxes so I could see how well it worked and how it looked after completion. This is my first time using it and I must say that I like the grain patterns and contrasts. This is frequently used to decking and is quite a dense and hard wood.
I used a small scrap of Maple for the lift just to add a little contrast.
It is 10×7x5 and has my signature alligator leather lined bottom.
I am looking forward to sculpting a box with it after I finish my work for the December 7-8th show.
