Zebra wood / Walnut Stash Box A friend gave me a small hunk of Zebra wood….not quite enough to do a whole project… I paired it will some walnut leftovers to create this stash box. This one is specifically made for sale at our local Minnesota Marine Art Museum, with the enameled logo pin in the center. The box measures about 4×6 inches, and the lid is hinged with hidden pins. The box is finished with satin poly and the tray and bottom are lined with leather. The corners are a sort of hybrid butt joint with dowels for looks and strength.

Good looking box, should sell quickly. I like the wood contrasts, ang the joinery is unique. Well done.
