Miters and Exotic Wood
So I have never worked with wood before. After many mistakes I finally got to the point where I had the pieces to put together. I am making a 1/4 inch thick 3.5×5 inch jewelry box for my friend. It’s essentially a box within a box to create a lip for the lid to sit around. I’ve enclosed pictures. I am working with Cocobolo and Poplar…weird combination I know, but I liked the contrast. Anyway after gluing the pieces together some parts are not flush. There are gaps in the box. I was hoping to use wood filler, it doesn’t seem to be a problem for the poplar, but the Cocobolo is hard to match. I don’t have any wood pieces left nor any sawdust left over to make my own filler. Thoughts?

Thanks in advance,
