The box is awesome, and that lid is a real piece of work. I wish I had the talent and the patience to do that kind of work.

I noticed the bottom side of that top looks little unfinished. What do you plan on doing there?

Keep up the good work

Beautiful, would go great here in the Great Northwest, Puget Sound area. Love the way you use the wood grain for waves. Really cool.

A ship shape box that is very nicely done, love the look of the zebra wood and the design of the base as well as the lid details.

thanks to everyone for thier words of encouragement!! Bradford, i used spray lacquer, semi-gloss. After letting it harden for a few days, i then use 0000 steel wool rubbed in a good paste wax and with the grain a light rub down. then let it haze over then using a soft lint free cloth i give it a good elbow grease rubdown!!
