Not sure what else to call it. I’m making a tall open box with the grain running vertically, the open end of the box will therefor be end grain. I’d like to finish off those four edges (end grain) surrounding the opening in a nicer fashion. The box is hard maple and only about 7”x7”x9” (7” being across the grain, 9” being the vertical “with the grain” length). I know that I can’t just cut some nice strips of walnut and glue them to the end grain, the wood movement across the 7 inches would surely show up in some ugly way.
Any suggestions for how I could cover up this end grain with a nice piece of walnut?
thanks for your input.
