#50 Making a Tiny Sq Box
Top and Front ---
Brazilian Satinwood is a naturally yellow wood that comes from South America. The Satinwood, when it is cut right, you can see the light move in the grain pattern as you move the box side to side just as on satin fabric. There are no stains on any of the wood that you see on this box. GOD did not limit himself to the brown tones when he made wood.
The type of wood is listed on the bottom of the box from the center out. On this box the wood is “Wenge” from West Africa, “Pink Ivory” from South Africa (a wood that is sacred to the Zulu tribe). “Black Palm” from Indonesia. (I cut this on an angle to give the black dots a different look) “Purpleheart” from Central or South America is a very bright purple wood. Then “Satinwood” from Brazil is used on the main part of the box. The Brazilian Satinwood has a more bright yellow color to it than the golden color that the satinwood from Sri Lanka has.
