Cherry box has a band of walnut/maple strips on lid. Used a Georgian Cherry gel stain on the exterior and several coats of poly. I’ve been saving a piece of highly figured walnut for something special. I resawed and booked the lid. No stain, but several coats of poly. It was fun figuring the angles and bevels for the lids. Both boxes measure about 15” long x 9” deep x 7” high. Presented them as gifts to two different longtime friends.
By the way – I’m not happy with wipe on poly. Haven’t been able to get a nice built up finish.(????) Ended up sanding most of it off and went back to brushing to get the smooth sheen, especially on the lids.
Thanks for looking!
