frame is brad nailed and glued quartersawn white oak with a couple layers of quartersawn zebrawood to add a little interest.Wood is sanded to 220 grit. Finish is a coat of spay lacquer, sanded to 400 grit and then followed by a couple coats of brushed on seedlac shellac.
Glazing with dark wax took the piece to the next level. Wax was wet sanded into the shellac with very fine scotch brite.
