Patching the Koa Dovetailed Box

Leave a comment

Short trip to the shop today to work on a variety of items. The day started with a quick surface sand on the koa and birdseye maple boxes. Both needed a little bit of touch-up (as is to be expected). On the koa box there was a reasonably sized chip out that I had to deal with. In this case I’ve got a scrap piece of koa glued into the gap. Next week I’ll cut that scrap out and proceed with a complete sanding of the box. The photo below shows the fill piece glued into the gap.
