Two Lace Wood boxes I have been working on. Both are trimmed with figured Maple and are lined with aromatic Cedar. Finished with Danish oil, poly and waxed. These were fun to make. Lots of fun miter joints!

Thanks for looking.

Love the project. Really like the look the cedar gives to the interior!

This is a wonderfully done project. It features a beautiful wood pairing, fine craftsmanship, and a lovely finish. Well done. The beading and chamfering are an especially nice touch. Is there some special reason for the cedar lining? Keep boxing and keep posting.

Thanks guys.

@ Boxguy; Aromatic Cedar or Eastern Red Cedar (which is a misnomer since its actually a type of Juniper) is often used to make or line linen chests, closets or sliced into inserts for drawers. It wards of insects and moths and thus protects clothing and paper. And it smells really good. I love working with it because of that amazing scent.
