This is a little ring box I made from a chunk of mahogany that I reclaimed from the scrap bin at Ye Olde Day Job. It’s actually one of several that I’ve made over the years from a variety of woods that flow through my workshop. I’m always amazed, though, at the complex character of mahogany’s grain once it takes on a finish (in this case, an oil and wax mixture, followed by several applications of shellac). I hope I wouldn’t be out of line in mentioning that I sell boxes like this and a variety of other woodcraft at my online shop (smilemoon.etsy.com).
