A first shot at using Bubinga cutoffs from the local Woodcraft store for a box – when I got to the liner part I couldn’t bring myself to cut off the live edges on the Curly Maple. And this is what it came out like. This idea will hopefully come up again…

Thanks all – either you like this idea or not. I was on the fence over it myself at first but am glad the pieces joined up in the corners like they did or It would look even more weird. The Curly Maple was a warped cutoff freebie I turned into a thick ‘veneer’ on the bandsaw. Just worked out…

I like it. Are you going to make a clear lid so you can see the edge? little glass panels recessed into another bubinga top panel, or poured clear epoxy…

No lid was intended but if I knew how to do what you suggest I probably would. Lack those skills I’m afraid…it holds the TV remotes and pens.

Nice box and I like how you left the box joints a little proud of the perpendicular side. Great Work!

This was due to lack of experience – I left the joints rough cuz I liked it but as with many machined joints, it takes sanding (or recutting!) to get goods results. This was a first shot using Bubinga and looks it. I’m getting very used to a lack of perfection in my work!
