Man Box…like a jewelry box but for a man? This one is for you David aka Patron.
A place to empty the pockets… wallet, keys, loose change, tums? and not on the kitchen bench or table lol
Hairy oak…the insert in the lid. I just love the patterns and swirls.. It grows in Western Queensland in the dry inland area.The bark looks like a wet YAK.. I kid you not.!!!! When you cut the slices the hairs fall like in a salon,,
The main box sides and framing are N.G. Rosewood…not as figured as the bandsaw box # 16888
Next post will have the insides.. Spanish cedar lined and purple felt bottom.?

Looks good, Larry.

I like it! I bet it would look good in hairy walnut, or hairy mahogany too. All kidding aside, great box!

Nice one Larry. What are the overall dimensions, or, how much man box is it?

Nice!!!!! Very beautifull grain!
David is going to love it.

In process of doing a “Man Box” with my daughter ( scrapys squirt ) for her husbands birthday.

Keep up the great work.

Not literally for David but as an example of the “man box” concept.
Sorry David LOL
