I saw a couple pieces of this Brazilian wood on eBay, and I had never worked with it before so I gave it a shot. It is extremely heavy and dense, but finishes very nicely. The center panel on the lid, as well as the pull, are walnut. I cut the rough shape of the pull out on the bandsaw, then finished shaping it on the spindle sander and by hand. Finish is Danish oil followed by several coats of wipe-on satin poly.
