First, thanks to all the folks that answered my questions regarding my saw blade. I finally could afford to have it sharpened. It’s amazing how well it works now….:)
Anyway, a friend has asked me to make a small box to hold her pills. It has to have a sliding lid, which isn’t a problem. She doesn’t care about the wood type. I was going to using bolivian rosewood, (someone gave me a small piece a few years ago). However, this morning, I was thinking about Redwood. I use to live in CA, (now in PA) and picked up a number of Redwood burls on a trip up North of San Francisco. I think it would be beautiful, but I’ve come across some talk about the toxicity of Redwood. Has anyone worked with it? I’m going to finish with shellac, so that’s not an issue. Anything else I should know? Thanks.
