Decorative Wooden Box

In this video, I show how to make a decorative wood box out of red gum and white oak. This DIY gift box was a lot of fun to create, and had a few challenges along the way. Watch the video below or follow along to see exactly how I did it:


I needed to make this box as a gift for someone. I started putting together ideas, and I really didn’t know what wood I wanted to use at first. Well, I found this piece of red gum in the shop that came from Philip Cranford of Cranford Design Works (If you remember, that’s the company where I got my branding iron from. Still love that thing…check him out if you’re needing one!). When I bought a bunch of white oak from him a while back, he gave me a piece of red gum. I had never worked with it before, but I really like how it looks. I might have to seek some more out.
