I started this box 2 years ago, then it got packed away during our move.
I found it (in pieces) while rooting around looking for stuff in my “new” shop.
I figured it was probably time to “get er done”.
Made from old growth Cherry with a Madrone burl lid surronded by a sycamore and ebony inlay that I made myself.
The pictures just dont capture the richness of that old Cherry.
Finished with Watco’s natural Danish Oil and the lid was wet sanded with Danish Oil to 2000 grit, then buffed and waxed.
Thanks for looking.
Randy

thank you all for your kind words.
yes, getting a shop back up and running can be a trial, as I am sure Monte can painfully attest to.

Outstanding! Even though it took a while, it was well worth the wait. The sycamore/ebony edging/inlay add a lot of class.
