made some more boxes this week
gleaned the design off of WWMM
from left to right,
maple with walnut on the top, oak with maple top, poplar with cherry and walnut on the top.
using poplar is not recommended, it is too soft and will easily tear out on the router
I also tried to use up some scrap veneer by attempting “marquetry”. It didn’t turn out to well.
there were small gaps that I had to cover up with sharpie but, not to bad for my first try.
Sanded to 320 and finished with 3 coats of spray polyurethane.

Thanks for looking,

Mark, nice work. I especially liked the four part top. Have you considered adding splines?

Neat boxes, has clean lines and like the wood combo. Keep it up and looking forward to more of them.
