I’m getting ready for Christmas by making 10-12 steps small and large puzzle boxes. This time I decided to work with sapelle veneer for the first time. I like the look of sapelle but it is really hard not to crack or chip especially on the small parts. Final finish is 1000 grid sand paper and wax.

these are nice where did u get the plans for them or are they something u made from a plan u had in your head? the veneer makes them look sweet the banding on the top of the big one came out real good is that holly the lighter wood around the edges of the darker wood?
