Last piece of banksia (gorgeous—couldn’t throw it out), was quite warped,
so made a box-body that wasn’t square.
Luckily found a piece of jacaranda with a similar curve, and
it’s a particularly light-colored piece.
And a scrap of brown-like-banksia wood for the base.
Dowelled shaped butt joins allow for non-squareness.

I really like the simplicity (though I realize it wasn’t simple).
Very clever use of warped wood.
Great save for a great box.
