Bob, thanks, that box is beautiful. I'd love to get some of that wood but haven't found a supplier on the internet. Don't know if it's even available. Thanks again. I do enjoy reading your posts.Barry, its amazing thing called "Heat Treated Rippled Sycamore".
I was given an off cut from a professional cabinet maker. I have never seen it advertised anywhere but the figuring is beyond belief. He had made a several thousand dollar furniture piece with it and was going to burn the scraps. Sacrilige!
I only have something like 8" x 2" x 10" long. I save it for very special things.
I will try to remember to get a better picture of it tomorrow.heres a link to another box I used it on
Bob, what's the figured wood you used in the handles of the two smaller ones?
https://sylva.org.uk/blog/innovative-hardwood-cladding-for-the-sylva-wood-centre-2/I've just this minute heard from him. he has another custom piece ordered with the same wood and will let me have the spare. Thats in the UK so it will have to come out to me a few pieces at a time in the luggage of family and friends. But well worth waiting for.
I have found one UK company on google that advertises heat treated wood, but when you click on the link... nothing. i dont know where he gets it from, he's not telling.
