Another Christmas present finished. This keepsake box is made from Texas mesquite and curly maple. The banding around the top and bottom in the maple is cocobolo. Semi-gloss lacquer is used as the finish. Box size is 11×8 x 7”.

Very nice. I only worked with cocobolo once and it was terrible. A very oily wood that didn’t like to sand. You obviously have much more luck with it than I did.
