Textured walnut and maple box
I wanted to make a small box that was highly textured. For this box the texture was created by carefully stacking walnut and maple rings. The walnut rings have ‘teeth’ cut around the perimeter.
Thanks for looking and I hope you like the box

I like it Roger!
Stacking pieces can use up a ot of little scraps.

This one looks like a droid!

Mind sharing how you cut the teeth on the walnut rings? Surely before gluing the stack, but holding a round piece over a router table is difficult.

I used a CNC machine to cut the rings. I don’t think it would be possible on my router table unless I built a jig to hold the pieces, similar to an indexing jig on a lathe.
