The Lumber in the background was laying around our club for many years, so needing a project I picked it up and cut in half and turned one half into this box. My wife Elaine loved it so now I need to turn the second one. Finish is Rub on gel urethane and MinWax.

Very nice. I love how the grain shows so nicely. How large is it?

Nice box, grain looks nice, very tight for mahogany.

Hi Ted! Nice looking box! Glad to see you doing some turning. I agree with the others. Doesn’t look like Mahogany to me either. Some closeups of the grain would help, and did you stain it? What was the natural color when wet? It could be Mahogany, but then, there are many types of mahogany too.

Regardless, I like it!
