Looks great! Steel wool in vinegar for the solution? Never tried it myself.

My little box collection is growing.

Well, got a fair sized piece of "Mexican ebony"... damn hard stuff.

@lesptr ... according to my limited online reading, this wood is rot proof. And more or less indestructible (for wood). Might make a good shower stool material.


Also have a piece of chakte viga... feels super dense. Neat pattern. Might destroy my saw blades.

Pictures to come...
