When I pick wood for boxes, I like to find interesting wood. It is not that easy to do. Here is a box made from a small board of zebrawood. This box differs from most that I make because it’s smaller and has a panel top. I usually glue on the tops. I think these are actually easier to construct, and should last a long time with little wood movement.
No splines… depending on my titebond molding & trim glue. The top and bottom panels are mahogany. I think it’s a good match color-wise.
Zebrawood is neat stuff!!
I also made it with more of a square appearance. The tones are pleasing and I like the overall feel of this one.
Thanks for looking!
