Project Information

Hi, This Art Box is made from Cypress, Black Walnut, & Padauk. I got the Cypress from a co-worker of my son-inlaw who lives in Louisiana, The lid is the Black Walnut with an Andy Style insert of Padauk, the corner splines are also Padauk. I flocked the inside with brown flocking after securing a divider made from the Cypress. I started this about a year ago but just finished it now (don't know why??) The finish is rattle can Deft Gloss Lacquer, & the dimensions are 12×7 inches & 3 1/2 inches deep. Always fun to do these, the Cypress is a fairly soft wood & easy to carve & sand to a nice finsih…...............................Jack
