Wow that's an awesome box. The wood you made it out of has some intresting grain do you know what kind it was?

For the panels and the lid I used a very, very light wood of Japanese origin. Unfortunately I don't remember the name. It's very prone to tear out and the end grain is just awful.

Awesome, but i mean dang to hear that it can be tempermental to work with. I've been wanting to buy a stack of paulowinia for a while. I want to use it to make some stuff for my daughter as well as hopefully a strip canoe.

Maybe it was just my board, but that thing is so soft you can scratch it with your nails without much force. I bought it for a frame but ended up using it in shop projects only. It feels like balsa good or something like that.
