Lacewood and Lace

This box is made with Lacewood and Maple. I used the Maple for the splines, lid crown, and the top drawer. The Lacewood is a very dense wood which makes it heavy. I really like the look of it when it’s sanded down and finished off. Enjoy

Thanks Hillbilly. I like the Lacewood too. Can be brittle.
You too Flatrock. I thought the Maple was just right.

No, Cabinetguy, I did not stain it. I sanded down to a 400 grit, applied 2 coats of Tung Oil and finished it off with 4 coats of gloss Lacqure

Great looking project. Very nice combination of woods with no stain. I will have to try these two together.
