I built this box for my wife for our twentieth anniversary this month. She hasn’t seen it yet. I haven’t made many boxes before. The wenge is finished with tung oil. Notice the light sections that came from cutting and sanding. I believe they will darken over time, but I actually enjoy them and wish they would stay. I thought the wenge and the aspen were nice contrasts. The photo is transferred by printing onto nonabsorptive paper and then pressing the paper to the wood. It took me a few times to get the technique down right.
