    Not as nice as the spalted maple box above, but a fun couple of hours

    I’m going to have to disagree with you Eric…personally I like your box better. The Spalted maple is pretty, but it’s not my style. The walnut is gorgeous.

    Really like the grain match on that end of the box Jim. Great job!

    That is wonderful. Walnut, correct?

    Yup. Im coming to realize that its by far my favourite wood to use

    I have to agree, walnut is right up there. Cherry is nice too. My first time was in my video series “A board of Cherry”, a cabinet for my son. The board came from Merv ( @JourneyMan ) originally.

    Just to get you guys thinking, consider mixing wood species such as using a inlay banding strip or making splines with a contrasting color of wood. It adds a great touch.

    I agree – I am a big fan on incorporating this into my projects.

    It sure does Lon. Mark used that technique on the outdoor table he built and it came out nice.

    I’m really beginning to like walnut a lot, too. That and cherry are the ones I’m using quite a bit right now.

    When I lived up north and hardwoods were hard to find, birch became one of my go-to materials. It is very nice to work but does tend to twist if you aren’t careful.

    I would really like to find some figured maple.

    Well done on the spalted maple box, it is absolutely stunning!

    The walnut box is well done as well!

    Probably my favorite go-to hardwood right now is Cherry. I always look forward to the finishing phase of my project when the cherry wood just starts to jump out. Alas, due to the high price in the area, I have not had much experience with Walnut except for on the lathe.

    Gorgeous walnut box Eric.

    The box I made for my daughter that gave me fits. Like I have mentioned, “keeping it simple” made it really hard. I fitted the inside panel at least 3 times unsuccessfully, the ink transfer took at least 4 tries, including mistakenly dying the wood first and having to sand that out of it, and the spray lacquer took forever. Of course the last coat ran and I had to wet sand and apply more.

    I wanted to keep the wood itself as the feature as the spalt is so nice. Sometimes a block of wood looks good as a block of wood.

    Nice work, that looks beautiful!

    Eric that box turned out every bit as nice as the maple one. They are both fine pieces of work.

    Thanks

    As a box for my home, the spalted maple isn’t my taste, but as a woodworker, the quality of work in that maple box far surpasses what I did with the walnut.

    Walnut is nice because you can keep it simple and let the quality of the material shine. Its kind of like cooking with top quality ingredients. Keep it simple and the end result is wonderful.

    I really need to practice box making in general. My skills aren’t where I want them. If nothing else, I need to work on my handsaws dovetails. This box used the PC router jig, which is great, fast, and just about foolproof, but I can’t space the pins and tails where I want to.

    I believe the easel was from Wood Magazine.

    I love contrasting woods too.

    I was pretty surprised the other day when I was watching Matt’s Weekly Shop Update by Matt Cremona on Youtube. When my project the Handprints in frame was mention in the Viewer projects. My project is at the 5.25 minute mark
