I have collected scrap hardwoods over the years and try to find creatives way to stick them together into something useful. The latest one is a Christmas present to my daughter returning from studies in London.Top is myrtle wood, sides are one piece of India rosewood cut into four pieces, legs are mahogany.

Beautiful – really like the design, that could be made out of pine and it would look good.

Been doing this since the early 80’s and have never used Myrtle. It looks beautiful on this box. Very nice work.
