Mahogany

I've not done a lot of work with Mahogany but now that I've made a couple of things I'm impressed. This little box is made from the other side of a re-sawed mahogany board that I used for another box previously posted [the box for concealing the tv remotes]. There were a couple of dings in it but I was able to avoid them [mostly ;) ]. Here are the results:

It's about 6 x 9 inches by 3 high.

The lining is automotive headliner [another suggestion by Ross several years back]. That stuff is available from Surr's in Fayetteville and it's inexpensive compared to any other comparable material. It has a foam backing which I glue to a piece of chip board [in the picture framing area of Hobby Lobby] which is also cheap. Chip board is like the stuff on the back of legal pads but come in large sheets. The stuff I got was $4 for [I'm estimating here] about 36 x 30 inches. Just spray on adhesive to attach the headliner to the chip board, let it dry, and then glue the chipboard to the surface you want it to cover. In my case, I covered the bottom of the box and the inside of the top -- covered up the exposed plywood.
