I wanted to make something very special for my wonderful wife. She loves writing thank you cards and letters, so I decided a card box was in order. It’s made from Sapele with Hickory splines.
I started this project with a few short pieces of 6/4 African Mahogany, or Sapele. Whatever you call it, it’s very pretty wood with a beautiful shimmer. I used my table saw to cut a kerf in the edge of the wood as a guide for the band saw.
