« Part 9: the triplets .... white oak,mahogany, fiddleback maple, rosewood and turquoise Part 10 of oak box series Part 11: oak , mahogany and rosewood boxes ......... hinges came in the mail today »

Sanded this one to 150 grit and figured a good wet coat of lacquer might bring out the grain a bit.

The rosewood and turquoise together for the photo. Will glue last.

The turquoise is from eBay China. Fun stuff.

The turquoise really adds a touch of class!

Can’t wait to see what one of these boxes looks like with a “Dan” tile on the top.

That is a grand design the turquoise button really sets it off.

Excellent work Buddy.
What do you mean by wet coat?. Is that another term for gloss finish?
