Box 28 Build
Made an interpretation of Box 28 with Black Limba, Canary Wood, and Walnut lining/pins. I liked the slightly contrasting grain patterns of straight/rough and straight/smooth. The canary wood looks a bit orange right now, but that will turn to a nicer brown and might bloom a few deep reds over the next couple of months.
Fun project overall. Main learning is that I really need to remember to use hardwood backing blocks with the drill to prevent chipout.
I think it would look better with milk pain...but I don't have any.
First time working with black limba.
My glueups are usually a work of art
Thought long and hard about 1/8th vs 3/16th for the pins. Decided for 3/16.
That orange in the canary wood will turn a nice maroonish brown.
Chipout is another lesson learned.
