Another 8-sided box
I purchased a board from West Penn Lumber in Conover, NC several years ago. Don't remember the species. It looks like pink ivory, but not positive.
I made an 8-sided box that about 5" tall. The 8-strips are about 2 1/4" wide. The finish is Zar oil-base polyurethane that I dilute 50/50 with mineral spirts.
There is probably enough of the wood left to make one more box. I have shown it to 4-people and all would like to have one. I told them my granddaughter gets first choice. Ha!
Also I'm including two picture of boxes that I made several weeks ago out of ambrosia maple and tiger maple. Some of the boxes have bubinga on the tops. I may have already shown you guys these.
