Default Mo boxes

I had a lady friend who wanted a box to put her important papers in. I made her one out of bubinga with a birdseye maple top. For the bottom I had resawn some cherry so I glued the thin pieces together to make the bottom around .20" thick.

And for Valentine's Day I made my wife a box out of birdseye maple with a Brazilian rosewood top. The bottom is made of thin pieces of birdseye maple where I had resawn the boards for the box. The finish on the bubinga and the rosewood is 3-coats of shellac. On the maple I put several coats of Zar oil-base polyurethane mixed 50/50 with mineral spirits. Malcolm / Kentucky USA

I took the tests and retirement is the best job I'm suited for.

Now I know why old guys wear suspenders.

Malcolm, absolutely superb in all ways . Those horse inlays are quite intricate, did you do those with a template and router, or was that CNC?

I have two different businesses that do my engraving. I take the boards to him before assembling the box. I believe he uses the computer to select the horses and the computer drives a small device for burning the engraving.
