It was the scrap cut out from a drawer from a much larger box I made in june. It was in my scrap pile and I had looked at it several times without getting any ideas, and it was due to go for firewood in my monthly clear out.
She picked it up, TURNED IT OVER, and said "I want to make a box from this".
As soon as she turned it (to me) upside down, I saw the possibility at once.
Its about 6" across, maybe 3" high by 4" deep.
The saw marks in the lid was something she didnt understand. She is used to painting, not varnishing, and thought a couple coats of clear would hide the marks. Wrong. but as I say, I did not touch the box during making, except to get a little definition on the front and back lips after her sanding got a bit too aggressive.
The centre is Iroku, the two bands between the ply and the end caps (which were an add on) are Padauk.
