Here is a list of the different types of wood I use to make my boxes. I generally use species from Europe or North America, although I will occasionally use sustainably harvested tropical species. I often add attractive veneers to the boxes (such as the sycamore jewellery box veneered with masur birch) and have included some of these to the list. Wood can vary so much in colour and grain pattern even from the same log so the images are designed to give you a general idea and not an exact copy of how the wood of your box will look like.

Mahogany.

There are a number of different varieties of mahogany which vary in characteristics. I was given some lovely boards which have been sitting around in someone's garage for many years. When that is used up I probably won't make any more boxes in mahogany.
