this is my first project using this wood, cocobolo , & what a suprise to see the grain just pop when i put on a coat of natural danish oil . The box measures 7” X 3 1/2” X 2 5/8” high, with the sides 3/8” thick & top & bottom 1/4” , I made the box with a liftoff lid & used small 1/4” magnets in opposite corners to keep it in line, the earth magnets really are strong so for a box this size you wouldn’t want to use a larger magnet. After the danish oil I put on about 5 coats of clear poly with sanding with finer & finer grits after each coat, I then applied a couple of coats of minwax.
