A few years ago I worked at a Home Depot in the hardware department. The boss I had there was Detroit Tigers fan. He had seen a few of the things I’d made and asked me to make him a cigar box with a Tiger’s log inlay in the lid. I used walnut for the box and holly for the inlay. Holly seems to stay very very white even after you polyurethane it. I like to use it as accent wood quite often, for this property.
