My son gave me some Pecan shorts. These were 1/2" and 1/4" thick, some spalted some not.
I was able to make this box from them. Out of the 1/4" piece i was able to cut 4 pieces being able to follow the grain around the box. See pic 2 and 3.
Box is finished with tung oil and then my home-made Danish furniture polish.https://woodworkingweb.com/creations/3372-danish-furniture
All in all a fun project.
