Found a small piece of really rare Spotted Maple and made it into a fun little box ;)

Maple & Walnut, 8” x 5” x 3”, Danish Oil (will get poly when the oil sets)

You are one of the lucky ones! Very few people get to see the spotted maple and even less gat to actually use it.
Cool looking box.

I just seen an advertisement for spot remover you might want to try. It’s called spot B gone. Love the box.

A great idea and you did it well. I think I might have some of that wood laying around somewhere. Spotted something…..I’ll find it! Nice job on this.
