Hobbit House site. If you like wood, you should be familiar with that site. Even if you don't like wood, you should visit that site. It's very, very unusual - there's, literally, no other site like it anywhere. And I really doubt there ever will be.) W hen people ask me to make a box for them they sometimes specify the type of wood to be used. It might be oak, or mahogany, or ebony, whatever. Obviously, the reasons for these choices are diverse. Perhaps they've seen another box made of that wood, or there's a piece of furniture to be matched, or they just might like the look or color of a particular species. You never know. These choices are fine with me. Just about every wood has something to recommend it, and, as long as I'm given some latitude in regards to the design, I can usually build something interesting.
Pretty, even, if I'm lucky.
