Beautifully executed box. I like how the color came out. Can you explain what roasted means? Well done.

Roasted is Oak that has been ‘caramelized’ in a kiln, the black color is throughout the wood. When you mill it you get a bbq smell. It is popular for flooring to get consistent deep black. Also done with Maple and Poplar to make it rot resistant for decking.
