I have completed the finishing on this box. It is finished with 2 coats of an oil/poly blend then followed with several coats of clear shellac. I did do a rub down to even out most of the telegraphing grain.
Funny thing is I had meant this as a Christmas gift for my wife but I didn’t tell her. I would occationally bring it in to show her the progress and get her thoughts on how it was turning out. She had assumed that this would be going up for sale on my Etsy site. When she started asking when it was going up and how long I thought it would be posted, I cracked and went ahead and told her. She was more than pleased. Got me out of the dog house for selling her other one.
One note, it doesn’t have any liners inserted at her request. She loved all the wood that was selected and didn’t want to cover it up.
The box is made from the following woods:
Lacewood, Wenge, Padauk make up the majority of the box.
the interior dividers are Wenge and the tray bottoms are ambrosia maple.
The bottom of the box is Sapele.
Thanks all and Merry Christmas!
