My wife asked me to build a small box to hold some scented votive candles to send to her sister for a birthday.
The box is made from Brazilian Koa flooring and Red Oak leftovers. Finish is spray lacquer.
The initial is pyrography.
Turned out pretty sweet.
Thanks for looking.

Well done, Carl. I like the scrollwork detail. Did you cut that yourself, or buy it? And the pyrography came out pretty good also. Ive tried it a few times, and always get less than desirable result, especially in oak.

The scrollwork was something my wife wanted me to add to the box. It’s a piece she found at Hobby Lobby. I wasn’t too sure how it would work, but after insetting the piece and burning the initial, the overall effect was very nice.

Yes, burning in oak is a slow process, even with the heat cranked up to max. I trained with another project for my brother, an oak barrel top that he wanted personalized.
